The Domino Effect

A plane tree, a group of Albanian people and the domino game are the central elements of the short film “The Domino Effect”. Multiple chain reactions were triggered in order for all these elements to coexist in Protomagias Square at Pedion tou Areos Park in Athens. The government’s neglect of the park and the current political and social situation in Greece are only some of the issues discussed by the game players. The film negotiates the limits between public and private space, as the lives, the memories and the daily routine of the Albanian people make the public private and vice versa.
