More information on how to watch the documentary online will be released soon. Below follows the documentary Press Release:



Construction workers, our heroic comrades...

The formation of a collective struggle during the period 1960-1967.

Exile... Communists who make a living in the buildings of Athens, where the post civil war state does not ask for proof of legality. Crushed fighters trying to stand back on their feet after years of persecution.


Poverty... Young people from the deprived province arrive in the capital looking for a better future, a job to survive and support their families. Internal migrants in a city undergoing political and social transformation.


Struggle... People with common and different starting points, young and older in a collective struggle that will be built with elements from the present and the past, from their fluid present and rich past. Builders, construction workers and craftsmen, take on their backs a trade union movement – a compass for the future.
