Is the city dead?


“Is the city dead?”, asked the mermaid, instead of seeking for her brother. Alexander was long lost, definitely dead but not forgotten. None remembers of the mermaid, although the city bears her name, Thessaloniki. 

In this hybrid documentary, Titika (42) and Thodoris (36), both permanent residents, share their thoughts about the current state of the city. Will Thessaloniki exist in a hundred years from now?
