The Red Teacher

Ο Κόκκινος Δάσκαλος

26th TIDF: World Premiere

Two political trials and executions have left an indelible mark on post-conflict Greece. The trial of Nikos Belogiannis and the trial of Nikos Ploumpidis. Ploumpidis, however, died alone, slandered by enemies and friends, dishonored. Personal drama and collective destiny co-shape this Promethean hero, who seems straight out of an ancient tragedy.
