Athens, from recession to depression (Bernhard Thiesing)

“Chronicles of a European Winter” is a documentary series telling stories of the everyday life of Europeans at the time of the debt crisis. The project started in November 2011, initiated by Etienne Haug, a French documentary maker currently living in Berlin: funds collected through a crowd-funding campaign led to the realization of the first season, available for free in Creative Commons. Already 20000 “real” views, the support of relevant information websites and a network formed around the project brought notoriety to the work.
