The infamous economic crisis, which was triggered in the U.S. in the mid 00's, is now overly spread across Europe like a sweeping blast. Greece, is one of many countries that was severely affected by this domino effect of economic instability. Greece's previous government, agreed on the first Memorandum with the IMF and EU in 2010, as to ensure a bailout loan that would supposedly help the country stabilize. One of the conditions for getting this loan, was for the government to impose severe austerity measures. These measures had major ramifications for the population, impoverishing the most disadvantaged people of Greek society. This project is an attempt to comment on the corrupt European banking system and invites the viewer to question who might be responsible for this crisis in the first place. Who is really benefiting from this situation?
