For four years, Norwegian filmmaker Håvard Bustnes has followed the greek far-right political party Golden Dawn from the inside, trying to understand the changes happening in his childhood vacation paradise. Golden Dawn is one of several examples of the rise of the far-right political thinking in Europe. The documentary follows the party in an unstable period in greek politics. When the male party leaders are imprisoned, accused of running a criminal organization, the women take charge of the party and drives it to become Greek’s third largest political party. We meet three women – a mother, a wife and a daughter of the imprisoned men. Bustnes follows them in their private life and in their political work, trying to understand who they are and what they stand for. We witness the growing distance between facts, feelings and political game, and get a unique access of the inner life behind the the frontlines of modern nationalism.
The Student Society in Trondheim will in cooperation with Kosmorama arrange “Samfundsmøte”, a public meeting at the Student Society Saturday March 10th, where far-right politics will be the subject. The meeting starts at 7.10pm, and Golden Dawn Girls-director Håvard Bustnes will be participating in the meeting.
