The word Polis comes from Greek, meaning a city or an entity composed of citizens. Polis X is a kaleidoscope of human destinies that refer to the ancient Greek ideal of the city-state. Instead of depicting a perfected state of an utopian community, the viewer is confronted by the obscene historical traces of the mankind’s inhumanity.
