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."

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.
