Village Potemkin [ Documentary - Completed - Sales ]


Seven former drug addicts introduce themselves to us. How are they remaining clean? What did they find out about themselves while trying to recover? What is addiction in the end? Dominikos, a former drug user, is wandering in the collapsing city of Athens with a bike and a go-pro camera. He meets friend facing the same situation as him: trying to remain "clean" and live their life full of consciousness. The joy of using, the collapse, the acceptance, the recovery.
