A Vision of Resistance


Shot two years before the military junta began to rule the country, Von Griechenland reflects upon the instability, which has characterized Greek government in the 20th century, culminating in the victory and eventual dismissal of liberal politician Georgios Papandreou.

Our take

Peter Nestler’s films made in Germany were all poignantly unconventional—formally adventurous, politically bold. But it was this prescient look at wartime resistance and post-war leftist politics in Greece on the cusp of dictatorship that effectively blacklisted the filmmaker. Essential viewing.
