Two Swedish directors set off for Greece to find out how the local residents feel about the media images of the crisis. On the basis of ten selected myths, they create a film essay in which they take the dangers presented by the media through to their conclusions using audio-visual counterpoint, warning against the threat of fascism.

„We are leaving Sweden to see what a crisis looks like. This is the first image we see. The public service has shut down and there’s only white noise.“


Swedish filmmakers Marta Dauliūtė and Elisabeth Marjanović Cronvall have worked together on a number of primarily short-length documentary films. The sole exception is Second Class (2012), a film about Lithuanian immigrants in Sweden, which together with the film Crisis Document. A Survival Guide shares its activist approach and criticism of media manipulation.
