Second Generation trailer
“This film is about the second-generation immigrants in Greece. Though born in Greece or having immigrated with their family at an early age, attended the Greek school and have been raised like every other Greek child, this social group is severely discriminated by the law. They are actually ghost Greek citizens not legally registered, and without the right to vote. After reaching the age of eighteen years old, the state asks obliges them to apply for a residence permit. By not submitting the required papers they are automatically considered illegal and logically are expected to move in their country of origin, a country that in most of the cases, they have never visited.
The given situation is almost unknown to the largest part of the Greek society while the second generation immigrants are daily struggling for their right to belong somewhere and live normally lead a normal life in the country.”
