Plato's Academy in Leiden

Plato's Academy in Leiden

December 19, 2011

Tonight at 19.00 hrs in Kijkhuis, Leiden 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.
