Between 1948 and 1951, 80,000 Greek citizens were interned on the small island of Makronissos. They included many writers, who wrote poems about their life/survival in this concentration camp environment. On the sound track, their poetry alternates with propaganda texts, while the ruins of the camp are explored in long travelling shots. An unusual and fascinating study.
