About

A captivating and unsettling look at one of Europe’s most prominent far-right parties – through the eyes of its leading ladies.

Extremist nationalism is gaining ground in many parts of the world, especially in Greece, where EU-imposed austerity and recent influxes of refugees have brought tensions to a head. While many may prefer to look away, director Håvard Bustnes focuses his cameras on the country’s far-right Golden Dawn party, at a particularly explosive time in its volatile history. With most of its 18 (male) MPs imprisoned, accused of overseeing organised criminal activity, their wives, mothers and daughters stepped in to fill the vacuum and lead the party.

Through interviews that often catch his protagonists off guard, Bustnes builds a candid portrait of a closely-guarded political family. Their conversations, evasions and confrontations offer thought-provoking and necessary insight into what fuels contemporary extremist politics.

Plus Audience discussion, Short Films
