The Beggar's Wood

Street musicians in Athens call whatever instrument they use to make their living on ''the beggar's wood''. This film examines the hardships faced by this special group of people, at the intersections of begging, free artistic expression and social marginalization, as experienced through the eyes of Panagiotis, a homeless street musician, who has been surviving for the past 15 years thanks to nothing but the strings of his trusted guitar.
