PRAISING RESPONSES AT THE PREMIERE OF AGORA IN MUNICH INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL DOK.FEST 2015

AGORA - Poster
The audience received AGORΑ with a particularly praising response at its German festival premiere on the night of May 14th at the 30th International Documentary Film Festival DOK.FEST.

The film premiered at the fully packed Rio Filmpalast in the presence of film director Yorgos Avgeropoulos who held a vivid Q&A session after the screening. During the thought-provoking debate that followed, the filmmaker shared with the audience images and realities of the Greek crisis, which the mainstream media in Germany rarely convey and which thus remain unknown to the German audience.

German spectators expressed their solidarity with the Greek people by stating that they cannot accept the strangulation of another European people by the policies implemented by the German government.

2 YEARS AFTER THE BLACK SCREEN, ERT RETURNS!

The Lost Signal of Democracy (awarded at PriMed Festival, France) documents one of the most crucial occurrences of the economic crisis in Greece: the unheard-of shutdown of the national public broadcaster ERT in 2013 by the previous Greek government. It was an autocratic and undemocratic decision that reminded Greeks of the dark period of the dictatorship. Two years later, The Lost Signal of Democracy is timelier than ever.

COSTA-GAVRAS: “I WAS IMPRESSED BY AGORA”

COSTA-GAVRAS: “I WAS IMPRESSED BY AGORA”
(Interview at VIMAgazino)

“Cinema is valuable when it is national, when it comes from the soul of a country”. This was the key-phrase used by prominent Greek-French filmmaker Costa-Gavras when asked about his views on Greek cinema in an interview at VIMAgazino.

“Recently I was not impressed by a film, but rather by the documentary film Agora”, said the director of Academy-awarded “Z” (Interview in Greek here).

This is not the first time that Costa-Gavras has referred to the documentary film AGORΑ by Yorgos Avgeropoulos. He was actually one of the first to support it by acknowledging its contribution to collective memory and to the documentation of one of the most difficult periods in modern Greece’s post-war history: “I watched your film with great interest and often with intense emotion. It is a serious and important film, which depicts the terrible times that the Greek people are going through. Your film is a historical fact. I hope that change will come soon.”
