“The Wake Up Call” is a short documentary on the political street art that has emerged in Athens during the course of the economic crisis.
The documentary follows four street artists 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.
