Greece: Tourism vs. Poverty

45' (GER, ENG subs)
Tourism is at an all-time high, yet many locals are still struggling to make ends meet with meagre wages. We introduce you to the staff of industry.

Tourism is booming: rows and rows of vacationers are flocking to Greece! The tourist sector, airlines and hotel chains are profiting tremendously from this boom. But the same can’t be said for the locals. Already victims of pension cuts and other cost-cutting measures, they now have to survive on the extremely low wages of seasonal jobs. The film features those who work in the shadows of tourism – the cooks, the waiters, the maids – bringing the lives of the locals to the screen.
