Experimental film from Athens 2012.
From the archive: A short clip from a documentary we were never able to finish in early 2016. It shows the hardships of volunteers who run a self orginized refugee rescue camp (Platanos) on the Greek island of Lesvos. A group of friends from Athens set up the camp in the face of E.U inaction with regards to the refugee crisis on the island of Lesvos.

Pleased to announce I have got some of my cinematic footage of political unrest from Washington DC to Athens in Paul Mason's new play which will be performed at the Young Vic this week and broadcast on BBC.
The play is based on Paul's book 'Why it's kicking off everywhere'.
"The world premiere of a play about revolution.
This is the story of the networked generation. How did we get from the optimism of the Arab Spring and the Occupy Movement to Trump’s election and the dislocation of the present day?
Journalist Paul Mason teams up with Young Vic artistic director David Lan for this powerful and challenging new show based on Paul’s acclaimed book.
Performed by Paul Mason, Khalid Abdalla, Lara Sawalha and Sirine Saba in promenade with stunning video designs, the audience will interact with the company throughout the show.
The show will be filmed and broadcast at a later date by BBC Television as part of Performance Live."
