Gig&Screening: Blame Kandinsky + Grimms Eye + Argon

Screening: Golden Dawn: A Personal Affair (2016)
Director: Angélique Kourounis

A journalist and filmmaker is delving for years into a local group of the Greek neo-Nazi party "Golden Dawn".

“My partner in life is a Jew, one of my sons is gay, another is an anarchist, and I am a leftwing feminist as well as a daughter of immigrants. If Golden Dawn comes to power our only problem will be which wagon they will put us on.”

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, having dedicated 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.
