AGORÁ II – CHAINED | Official Trailer #1 from Small Planet Productions on Vimeo.

 

For four and a half years, between 2015 – 2019, acclaimed filmmaker Yorgos Avgeropoulos observed Greek society on multiple levels. As well as having exclusive access to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, he followed others, including a refugee couple from Syria and a mother whose child was murdered by Golden Dawn.

In 2020 he updated the film to cover covid-19 and the decisions of the Golden Dawn trial.

The result is a unique and multiple story-lined film: a tale which evolves and unfolds with the characters over time as they face difficult decisions, even to partially achieve their goals.

Avgeropoulos is the only filmmaker to have had behind-the-scenes camera access during the negotiations between the Greek government and its creditors in the dramatic first half of 2015.

This allows him to fill-in crucial missing pieces in the puzzle of those days, actions that were so decisive in re-shaping the European political landscape.

The remarkably frank comments he elicits and the political scenes he captures changes our perspective on what really happened.

But above all, this is a profoundly human film.

A cinematographic mosaic of a modern Greek tragedy, posing critical questions regarding the future of Avgeropoulos’ country, as well as Europe’s.
