What happened to neon sign?
Don’t you ever wonder where these beautiful neon signs we see in vintage pictures or films have gone?
Giorgos Poulios is a third-generation neon-sign crafter that owns a family business and a small workshop in Gyzi neighbourhood,Athens. His grandfather was one of the two first neon-sign makers in Greece and the tradition has stayed in the family. This is a short documentary produced from GreekTV.com about the art of neon sign making that has become extremely rare, however very attractive. Giorgos shows us how he works with glass and neon, he talks about family tradition and he shares his thoughts about Greece in a time of crisis.
