Synopsis
An unemployed, disgruntled Greek nationalist in Athens has his world turned upside-down when his apartment building and beloved city park become a home and resting stop for migrants in transit across Europe. There, refugees searching for a new life must navigate the seedier elements of Greek society to survive. Mixing a kinetic visual style with ripped-from-the-headlines storytelling, Amerika Square is an unflinching look at the mass migration economy–where, “borders are business.” Original title: Plateia Amerikis.
