Golden Dawn: A Personal Affair

What’s in the mind of the neo-Nazi next-door?

Thursday, April 21 2016 at 20:30

in MIKROKOSMOS cinema (106 Syngrou ave., Athens – metro station “Syngrou-Fix”)

Language: Greek

The screening will be followed by discussion with the director and members of the production team in the cinema’s bar.

The financial collapse, the political instability and the family relations are placed into the spotlight as the documentary is trying to discover “what’s in the head of GoldenDawners, who pose as victims” of the system.

Golden Dawn “never hid” its ideology. Its influence in the polls might have been almost nonexistent previously, but the compatibility of this ideology with unshakeable beliefs in Greece – cultivated by many clergymen and most of the Media and political system – is the fertile ground on which the organization flourishes.

The director is looking into the matter through her personal obsessions, her concerns and fears, after dedicating many years and another two television documentaries in approaching the neo-Nazi party, which has taken the third position in Greece’s political system after three decades of obscure but bloody activity.

How can a party that promotes violence, hate, sexism and murders amplify its reach after each pogrom?

How can Golden Dawn, when in France it could never exist – in the same way -, remain the third political power in Greece for four years?
