Transit in Columbia, Athens. from Dionysis Kouris on Vimeo.

Dionysis Kouris‘s short documentary about North African immigrants living in the abandoned Columbia Records compound in Athens, Greece, was selected as a winner in the video category of the 2011 PDN Photo Annual. “After spending some time there, [the immigrants] try their luck at the port of Patras, in hopes of getting on board a ship to Italy,” Kouris writes. “Sometimes they manage to illegally emigrate to other cities, but very few succeed.”
