Diese Film-Dokumentation zeigt die Geschichten von 14 Menschen während der Nazi-Besetzung Griechenlands. Auf Grundlage der Erinnerung von vierzehn Menschen an die Zeit des 2. Weltkriegs in Athen, entstand ein Film über das kollektive Gedächtnis, den Kampf eines Volkes gegen italienische Faschisten, deutsche Nazis und ihre griechischen Kollaborateure.

Augenzeugenberichte veranschaulichen den antifaschistischen Kampf der Athener von der Zeit der grossen Hungersnot 1941-42 bis zur Befreiung Athens.

Der Film fand grosse Beachtung auf dem Workers Unite Film Festival 2018 in New York City. Er besticht durch seltenes Archivmaterial, dem vibrierenden Sound der griechischen Indie-Gruppe drog_A_tek

The Partisans of Athens is a new documentary about the Resistance during the Nazi Occupation of Athens (1941-1944). Fourteen people recall memories from that period.

The film is about collective memory, about an entire people’s struggle against Italian Fascists, German Nazis, and their Greek collaborators. Based on the testimonials of those who took part in the resistance, The Partisans of Athens sheds light on stories of struggle from the period of the great famine of 1941-42 to the liberation of Athens.

The 14 protagonists create a mosaic of experiences, struggles, and expectations of men and women who chose to stand against defeatism and collaboration with Nazism. Including rare archival material, the original music score of drog_A_tek and footage of historic neighborhoods in today’s Athens.

19.30 h Food (Küfa) – very nice.
