Busking In Thessaloniki

The film documentary named “Busking In Thessaloniki” is a different view of the buskers in Thessaloniki and especially a different view of street musicians. Is the road an open art festival? Does it produce art? Are the musicians beggars? Is the racism a real problem for the street musician? Is the state helper or enemy? This documentary tries to answer these questions and show the other side of the road. The colorful side. Simos and his dog, Cassetta, Yuri the Bulgarian musician and the Ananas Band talk about the attitude of the people who pass in front of them every day, about the legal status, the racism against the foreign musicians, the job’s difficulties, the beauty of playing music inthe street, the different between playing music in the street an playing in a music stage.
