Golden Dawn Girls

Norway, Denmark, Finland, 2017 (97 min.)

In recent years, Greece’s image as a country of sunny beaches and friendly people has been overshadowed by political ideologies that are terrifyingly close to Nazism. With many prominent members of the far-right Golden Dawn party now behind bars, a daughter, a wife and a mother continue to propagate its message—and all three of them are seasoned enough to avoid any slips of the tongue during interviews. But while they regularly stop the interview to make sure it went as they want, filmmaker Håvard Bustnes just leaves the camera running and reveals an ever-widening gulf between clear facts and political image-making.

“A grimly compelling study of the rapid rise of neo-Nazism in Greece”

“Women have been written out of history for their shocking contributions, as well as for their positive roles” – Open Democracy
