Artherapy 2010
Creative expression clashes with the law and mainstream culture in Artherapy, an examination of three young artists’ struggles in contemporary Athens.

Ilia the lead singer of the band Stiletto Scag, Andreas a young graduate trying to make it as an actor and Alexandros a street artist working on a commissioned mural, come together to represent the musical and visual arts scene of Greece. Interrogated by police, rejected by society, and struggling to make ends meet, their celebration of youthful expression crashes into a harsh reality faced by all in the arts scene.

Delving into the underground art spaces of Athens like never before, Veteran director Perakis’ creative docu-fiction captures the frenetic energy and bitter disappointments of young Greek artists today.
