Golden Dawn: A Personal Affair

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

A film by Angélique Kourounis

Documentary, 90′.

Language: Greek with English subtitles

Screening starts at 18:00 and discussion will follow in english, with a possibility for swedish translation.

A journalist is delving for years into the organization of the Greek neo-Nazi party “Golden Dawn”.

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 Golden Dawners, 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.

A discussion will follow on experiences of antifascist struggle in greece, the trial of GD as a criminal organization and the connection with european and western politics.
