"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

 

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

 

"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

The new documentary film by Yorgos Avgeropoulos, “THOSE WHO SURVIVED - Stories of Dignity”, will have its premiere on Sunday, December 11, at 19:00, at TRIANON cinema, at an event co-organized by the Greek Council for Refugees and the BABEL Day Center.

“THOSE WHO SURVIVED – Stories of Dignity” is a short documentary film that sheds light to an almost unknown aspect of the refugee crisis.

Many of the thousands forced to follow the pathways of migration, are victims of torture. They are amongst the most vulnerable of vulnerable, tortured in their country in the most savage and unspeakable manner. They succeeded in fleeing from their persecutors, and risking everything, placed their lives in danger, yet again, to seek protection at the gates of fortress Europe. Murat, Jean and Ali, now rendered invisible in the crowds of the Greek capital, face a new adventure: to convince the authorities of their story with the sole proof of their word and body, to set up a new life from scratch, and most importantly, to heal their wounds.
