The Wake Up Call
“The Wake Up Call” is a short documentary on the politicized street art that has emerged in Athens during the course of the Greek economic crisis.
The documentary follows four Greek street artists (Paul, MaPet, Absent & Bleeps) in their attempt to leave an imprint on the urban landscape of Athens. Politics, satire and colours are merged together to create an outdoor manifestation of ideas, far from the dominant ideology.
By documenting the work of the four artivists, “The Wake Up Call” reveals an attempt to force a political awakening on crisis-stricken Greece through street art.
