New York, December 7: Greek documentary film

Public Events Directory - Previous Article - Next Article

From: "HR-Net News Distribution Manager" <>

Originally From:

Greek Cinema Showcase continues this Friday, December 7, with the New York premiere of ROADBLOCKS.

In his first feature film, documentarian Stavros Ioannou tells the story of a Kurdish refugee who, after travelling to Athens to search for a missing brother, enters the murky existence of undocumented refugees. We see the difficulties faced by those people forced to the edge of society.

ROADBLOCKS was filmed in Koumoundouros Square in central Athens. Ioannou used a digital video camera, filming almost entirely at night in perpetual streetlight, and thus conveying the marginalized life of not only the Kurds in Koumoundouros but of the many thousands of "illegal" migrants trapped in Europe's transit camps or en route in trucks, trains and unsafe boats.

ROADBLOCKS 2000, 98 minutes In Greek and Kurdish with English subtitles
