Between 1947 and 1950, more than 80 000 Greek citizens were imprisoned on the isle of Makronisos in reeducation camps created to ‘fight the spread of communism’. Among these exiles were a number of writers and poets. The film blends their poetic writings with the reeducation propaganda constantly piped through the camps’ loudspeakers.
