The project :
"Chronicles of a European Winter" is a documentary series telling everyday life stories of people living in Europe during the early 2010's economic crisis, known as the "european debt crisis". Initiated in November 2011, this long term documentary project already counts three 45 minutes-long episodes. This first season tells the daily life of a few people living in Athens, a snapshot of the situation in december 2011. Following those chronicles, one progressively realises what it means, as well materially as psychologically, to live in a country where the social balance that everyone took granted for decades is shattered in a few years.
In 2012 a cooperation with photographers Stefania Mizara and Anna Civetta, picture curator Camille Pillias and editor Nelly Ollivault led to the release of this video work going along with the first episode.
