Part of a larger campaign to raise awareness on the burning issue of immigration, “Salam Neighbor” isn’t just a beautifully crafted story. It’s one of the most important documentations of displacement ever made, directly inspiring people to take action.
Docs on Wheels is a travelling documentary showcase that has been touring overlooked Athenian neighbourhoods, regional areas and culture-starved islands since November 2013, in collaboration with local government agencies and cultural associations, with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Athens. Docu-centric NGO Exile Room designed this itinerant film program with social issues in mind, combining the audiovisual experience with a series of hands-on workshops.
After the success of the American Documentary Showcase, which took place in Athens and Mytilini, a hand-picked selection of its best documentaries will continue their journey through Greece as part of Docs on Wheels.
