SYNOPSIS

In June 2012, the far-right Greek political party Golden Dawn won 7% of the parliamentary vote. National Film and Television School (London) student Konstantinos Georgousis follows few party members, in the best fly-on-the-wall tradition, while they patrol the streets of Athens, chalk the words "Greece for the Greeks" in the squares and stop for a drink on café terraces, always keeping a vigilant eye on immigrants. (And yes, they have a lot to say about Romanians, too!)

Film screened under the aegis of the European Year of Citizens 2013.
