2nd Generation

2nd Generation

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.
