Andreas, Memories of a Family
Ιn the documentary Andreas, Memories of a Family, filmmaker Nikos Pilavios has attempted to present a portrait of the private life of Andreas Papandreou, through the reminiscences of his family - his wife and four children. The main body of the film consists of home movies, filmed and lovingly preserved by Margarita Papandreou, starting in the early fifties, up until the mid-eighties. This invaluable material shows Andreas progress from a young husband in love, to a caring father, to a gentle grandfather, while at the same time, from a different viewpoint, we follow his political career, which seems to begin with his first visit to Greece and his father in 1953, after a thirteen-year absence, reaching its peak with the 1981 elections. Apart for this outstanding footage, the documentary is enriched by rare photographs from the family's private life, as well as the testimony of Margarita Papandreou and her four children - Sophia, George, Nikos and Andrikos.
