"Raw Material' documentary at the Panorama of Greek Cinema

The Panorama of Greek Cinema return on Wednesday, February 6th at 8th with the documentary 'Raw Material" or 'Proti Yli' in Greek.  The film, which took six years to shoot and make, "offers the viewer an utterly authentic perspective on the lives of people for whom, as one of them described it, scrap metal is both their "treasure and mistress.” This impressive documentary, with its wealth of compelling footage, in spite of its theme maintains a serene atmosphere throughout and dispenses with all traces of cheap sentiment. Its impact is thus all the more powerful."

For more info visit the Panorama of Greek Cinema website.

We usually meetup at the Parthenon/Chevy Chase Lounge at 7:00 pm prior to the movie, though I can not be there this month.

    Hello, Marylou and Nicolina,
    Are you planning on meeting at the Parthenon Lounge at 7:00 pm this evening prior to attending the "Raw Material" film? I will go there first in the hopes of finding you there. If I don't see you, then I'll simply head on over to the Avalon, where I'll be meeting a couple of friends. I'm new to this Meetup group, and I generally attend the Greek films with a couple of longtime friends, but would be happy to meet you at the Parthenon beforehand. Look forward to either hearing from you or seeing you, or both! Na eiste kala! Laurel (sta ellinika to onoma mou einai n Dafne.)

      Geia sou, Marylou! Many thanks for letting me know you won't be able to make the meetup tonight at the Parthenon Lounge. Much appreciated. The concert tomorrow evening sounds fabulous, and I'm contemplating attending. Is this going to be a group event or are meetup members simply going on their own? If the former, is there a central meeting place where everyone will be meeting up? Look forward to hearing from you! Have a great day!

    I do plan to attend the film. As for meeting up at the Parthenon in advance, is anyone planning on doing so? If not, I will go directly to the Avalon. Greatly looking forward to seeing this film!
