Plato's Academy in Arnhem

Plato's Academy in Arnhem

December 14, 2011

Tonight at 19.00 hrs in Filmfocus, Arnhem the fiction film Plato's Academy. In this film we meet the Greek Stavros and his three friends who hang out in front of his ill-frequented store at a peaceful square

in Athens, while uttering condescending remarks about Albanian and Chinese people walking by. Their routine is disrupted when Stavros’ mother recognizes an Albanian worker as her lost son. What does this mean for his nationality? A Greek tragic comedy about xenophobia.
