Photos in Motion (Photomotion Group)

A documentary that consists of photographs and audio documents captured in central Athens, Greece during the period from the end of 2009 until early 2012.
The row of photographs begins with photographs that were captured during the Movement of the Indignant Citizens that took place in Syntagma Square from the end of May 2011 until mid July 2011. It continues with general photographs of Athens and the life in it since the end of 2009, a while before the legalization of the first Memorandum, until the end of 2011. And it culminates in pictures of the very recent destructions and total burning up of many of the historic buildings of central Athens during the night of the legalization of the 2nd Memorandum on the 12th of February 2012.
The photographs have been montaged with audio documents from Syntagma Square during the whole development of the Movement of the Indignant Citizens. The audio documents include, among others, parts of the speeches of Max Keiser, Dimitris Kazakis, Giannis Varoufakis and Dimitris Antoniou, in this sequence and also parts of the announcements that were heard through the speakers of Syntagma Square and of the speeches of the people that took part in the General Assemblies that were taking place every night in the Square, and especially in those that took place after the 24-hour General Strike of the 15th of June 2011 and the 48-hour General Strike of the 28th & 29th of June 2011. The documentary closes with part of the concert appearance of Giannis Aggelakas in the afternoon of the 1st of July 2011, two days after the legalization of the Mid-Term Project.
The photographs have been captured in 35 mm film format and they have been digitally scanned. The audio documents have not been submitted in any digital procession with the exception of their montage during the creation of the flow of the movie.
