Piraeus after WW II and until 1970 is shown through clips of classic Greek films such as “Lily of the harbour” (1952), “Lola” (1964), “Never on Sunday” (1960), etc. While tourist development highlights the harbour, Troumpa remains a red-light district with cabarets and brothels, where passing tourists seek indulgence.
