From Democracy to the Market : Avgeropoulos’ Film “Agora”


After its French premiere at the International Festival of Audiovisual Programmes FIPA 2015 in Biarritz (23 January 2015) and just before entering the third week of its national theatrical release, AGORΑ, the film-arc of the Greek crisis by Yorgos Avgeropoulos, receives an overwhelming response by audiences throughout Greece. The film will continue screening at AAVORA, ALKYONIS and STUDIO theaters in Athens as well as at PAVLOS ZANNAS and TAKIS KANELLOPOULOS theaters in Thessaloniki. It also screens at VITSENTZOS KORNAROS theater in Heraklion, Crete while on January 29th it will start screening at CINE PALLAS in Arta, on February 5th at ATTIKON in Chania, Crete and on February 12th at CINELAND PANTELIS in Rethymno, Crete.
An impressive mosaic that elucidates the last four years of the Greek crisis, AGORΑ is a cinematic antidote to oblivion, a film that urges us to reflect on Europe’s present and future. The film presents a recapped chronicle of the fall, investigating the political and economic high-risk experiments in Europe as well as its tragic consequences on the lives of ordinary Greek citizens.
On Friday January 30th at 8 pm, film director Yorgos Avgeropoulos will introduce the screening of AGORΑ at the STUDIO theater in Athens. The screening will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the audience.
From February 2015 and on, the theatrical distribution of AGORΑ will gradually expand to other Greek cities whereas it will start broadcasting by TV networks in Europe and Asia
