synopsis

All their lives they kept themselves in the shadow of their men. But when those men are sent to prison, the women answer the call of duty and become the new PR officers of Golden Dawn, Greece’s rapidly ascending fascist political party. When filmmaker Håvard Bustnes decided to follow Ourania, Jenny, and Daphne taking the reigns of the party, the result was this simultaneously dazzling and frightening observation of a toxic ideology in action. The dynamic of the filmmaker’s relationship with his female characters, as well as his decision to leave the camera running after the end of a take, adds to the film a delicious dose of serendipity. This makes the film even scarier as a unique incursion into the inner affairs of Greece’s third party, whose temporary leader does not shy away from describing the portrait of her father executing the Nazi salute as “adorable.”
