Join us this Friday, Nov 17 for the screening of two works of the famous Greek director Pantelis Voulgaris:
- 7.30pm: documentary "The Chronicle of the Dictatorship 1967-1974" / "Το Χρονικό της Δικτατορίας 1967-1974" (in Greek without subtitles, sorry!)
- 8.15pm: movie "Petrina Hronia" / "Πέτρινα Χρόνια" (in Greek with English subtitles - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089804/)
November 17 is currently observed as a holiday in Greece for all educational establishments celebrating the Athens Polytechnic uprising in 1973, a massive demonstration of popular rejection of the Greek military junta of 1967–1974 that lead to the restoration of parliament democracy in the country.
HSA will commemorate this holiday by screening a historic documentary and a movie that depicts the life struggles of Greek citizens during those difficult years. Highly recommended as an important history lesson for all Greeks and for everybody who wants to understand the political background of Greece, with implications to its contemporary political scene.
Snacks and refreshments will be served.
