Into the Fire: The Hidden Victims of Austerity in Greece (2013)
In times of austerity things look bleak for the Greek people; but they’re far worse for those who have recently arrived. Without housing, legal papers, or support, migrants in Greece are faced with increasing and often violent racism at the hands of the growing neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party and the police. Shot and edited with sensitivity and compassion, Into the Fire doesn’t pull its punches, and makes for harrowing viewing in parts. The film gives an insight into the reality faced by people who simply want to lead peaceful, normal lives, and how they are organising to protect themselves. ¦ Directed by Guy Smallman and Kate Mara. Presented in association with Anti-Fascist Action Ireland.
