Bleeps.gr (or Bleeps) is the pseudonym used by a Greek artist and his crew. The procedure of creating starts as an initial idea which accepts historical and philosophical elements in order to lead to its final shape. When all that comes to the stage of being materialized stencils, markers, brushes and other materials are combined.

The established motivation for every activity is money. The motivation was never, after all, human beings. In a capitalist system, human beings have learnt to think in terms of equivalence, subjugating their entire lives under the law to give less than what you take as an exchange. Goods follow the arbitrariness of hyper-value. The configuration of desires from consumers gradually installs the power of the status quo. ‘I want what you are selling to me because you can convince me that with that I will feel better and more supreme’. In capitalism, if you are not a part of the bourgeoisie, you are just a consumable unit.
This documentary follows four Greek street artists (Paul, MaPet, Absent & Bleeps) in their attempt to leave an imprint on the urban landscape of Athens. Politics, satire and colours are merged together to create an outdoor manifestation of ideas, far from the dominant ideology.
