Antikythera is a small Greek island in the Ionian Sea, where a small population of inhabitants have been struggling for decades to maintain the livelihood of the civilisation. The island measures barely twenty square kilometers, and is home to a mere twenty people during the winter months. Most of them are male and of advanced age. Among other things, the work poses the unresolved question regarding the survival of the island, currently still inhabited. At the same time, Jonas Berndt offers a glimpse into the seemingly solitary way of life, one that seems unusual in modern day Europe.
