If you have a spare hour and 14 minutes.

And are genuinely baffled/scared about what is going on.

We highly recommend a viewing.

Here is a Greek documentary on the crisis which features a lot of renowned academics who are critical of what is being imposed on Greece and other ‘peripheral’ countries. Particularly interesting is the concept of ‘odious debt‘  (I think in Ireland you guys call it “NAMA”) and the case for debt cancellation, explored in the film through the two very different cases of Ecuador and Iraq. Oh, and Lenihan’s “we all partied” moment is given an airing too.
