AGORA - Poster
"Cinema is valuable when it is national, when it comes from the soul of a country. Recently I was not impressed by a film, but rather by the documentary film AGORA."
Costa-Gavras, Interview at VIMAgazino

 

"It would be nice if our government team would take the time to look at such films in order not to lose touch with reality – in order to remember that the aim of its policy is to prevent such conditions instead of causing them."
Orlando Pascheit, NachDenkSeiten

 

"Perhaps the most important documentary of the year."
Thomas Schneider, Haus des Dokumentarfilms

AGORA - Poster
AGORΑ by Yorgos Avgeropoulos received the Best Documentary award at the 9th Los Angeles Greek Film Festival! The Orpheus Awards Ceremony took place on Sunday night June 7th at the fully packed Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

At the ceremony, director Yorgos Avgeropoulos sent his warmest greetings from Athens with a brief but significant speech:"I would like to thank you and the organizers of Los Angeles Greek Film Festival for the hospitality of the film and their warm hearts. I hope AGORA contributes in a deeper understanding of Greece and Europe's financial and social crisis. I think time has come to ask ourselves: What is the biggest achievement of Europe? Is it Market's Economy? Or Democracy? I believe the biggest achievement of Europe is Democracy and we now have to defend it, day by day."

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.
