Social Screenings: Adults in the Room (2019)
As indebted and suffocated Greek economy is heading for bankruptcy in 2015, a left-wing Syriza government is elected with a political program aiming at negotiating new conditions with the Troika of European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund in what is one of the most spectacular political battles of the past decade. However, the new finance minister Yanis Varoufakis soon discovers the limits of rational debate with the Troika -- almost as if the creditors do not really want their money back but rather want to crush the country so it does not serve as an inspiration for others...
Let's meet and watch Adults in the room, a movie directed by Costa Gravas and inspired by Yanis Varoufakis' memoirs and reconstructions of the meetings held behind the closed door between January and July 2015.
A discussion will follow after the screening as always. Both the film and the discussion will be in English.
