Screening: The Lost Signal of Democracy + Q&A

Monday 7 April 2014, 7:00 PMBOOK NOW

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Yorgos Avgeropoulos.

 

On the evening of 11 June 2013, the Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras pulled the plug on ERT, Greece’s public broadcaster, after 75 years of continuous operation. Both TV and radio frequencies fell silent, making screens broadcast black and the FM to buzz.

The closure of ERT was an unheard-of political act that shocked Greek citizens, bringing back memories from the dark period of dictatorship. The silencing of public television resulted in a political conflict and provoked protests in a country already divided. It also caused a fierce international outrage from all around the world.

Directed by Yorgos Avgeropoulos
Duration: 65′
Year: 2013
