"It’s so moving and it’s so important that things like this kind of presentation of Greek films is right now going on outside of Greece. Because it’s a very special kind of moment for all of us, as you know, for a new Greek culture - in a sense, a cinematic culture - to come out from Greece and be spread in this way in various big cities in the world."
"The very first idea to make this film was based on a personal need to speak about my city—my city is Athens. I’m born in Athens, I’ve lived all my life in Athens. And for me Athens has become [in] the last years a very traumatic city. Athens has lost its face, forever."
—Margarita Manda, the director of “Gold Dust” screening tonight at the Museum of the Moving Image.
