Costa-Gavras’ 1969 political thriller “Z” screening tomorrow, Friday July 1

June 30, 2011

In an effort to bring attention to the current situation in Greece we’ll be screening this classic film beginning at 9 pm, Friday July 1.  The film presents a thinly fictionalized account of the events surrounding the assassination of democratic Greek politician Grigoris a Lambrakis in 1963. With its satirical view of Greek politics, its dark sense of humor, and its downbeat ending, the film captures the outrage about the military dictatorship that ruled Greece at the time of its making
