The austerity measures that have been breaking down the Greek economy and society since mid-2010, when the country was delivered to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), have generated a formidable crisis-focused visual culture. Described by the press as ‘an ingenious cinematic allegory’, Yorgos Zois’s popular short manages to move and entertain by showing the inviolability of the ‘no man is an island’ principle.
