Every Single Day deals with the parallel stories of 3+1 people that made their first contact with hiphop in 90’s Greece, recording their experiential narrations within a society that was changing day by day, year by year. The film uses examples coming from the everyday lives of its subjects to re-tell the country’s story from the economic boom of the ’90s to the present’s devastating financial crisis. Its filmic innovation lies in the fact that it uses elements of the hip hop culture to create alternative narratives that complete or contrast the mainstream ones. The film contextualises the culture’s practices in an ethnographic manner by presenting the day-to-day dimensions of the greek hip hop scene, drawing it’s citations from the streets where it was born.
