The Fixer

28/9/2016, 18:00, Greek Film Archive

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Ian Olds steps into the world of fiction for the first time, with this portrait of a man lost amongst continents. A former Afghan fixer for Western journalists, who left his embattled country behind to seek asylum in the U.S., dreams of becoming a journalist himself. A mysterious disappearance, though, overshadows this new beginning and fuels the local community’s prejudices against him. Free entrance

With an intro by Maria Efthimiou, University of Athens history professor
