Join us this Thursday, 27th October at 7.00 pm, at the Cyprus Community Club of NSW (58 Stanmore Road, Stanmore) for a live Skype Q&A with director Thodoros Maragos, following a screening of his latest film “How Can I Stay Silent”.
How Can I Stay Silent (2015) 97′
Dir. Thodoros Maragos
A dramatised documentary that interweaves between documentary, theatrical narrative and cartoon to present a view of the Greek crisis from the point of view of ordinary people. A mix of direct statement, popular political debate, humour and references to past resistance, this film is a contemporary political testimony by the veteran director of socially-critical comedies of the 1970s and 1980s.
Maragos is unique at accurately portraying Greece with a mixture of humour and tragedy. His political commentary is often predictive and cane be incisive even years ahead of his time.
