The Greek Debt, a European Tragedy / La Dette Grecque, Une Tragédie Européenne
Directed by: Gilles Grégoire
This animated film intends to sum up in a simple and easy way how Greek indebtedness grew into the outbreak of the public debt crisis of 2010. It shows how this crisis is directly linked to our everyday lives as Europeans and seaks to denounce, with solid arguments, the huge disinformation around this subject. The whole project was based on unpaid volunteer work (The total budget of the film was 2.200€) while it mobilized, for five months, a team of seven people, plus six translators. A lot of creativity and self-sacrifice were necessary to by-pass the lack of budget.
