Golden Dawn Girls

Golden Dawn Girls
dir.Håvard Bustnes/Norway, Denmark, Finland/2017/93 min

“Whatever has happened to Greece?” wonders filmmaker Håvard Bustnes out loud at the start of this disturbing documentary.

When the members of neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn are imprisoned and accused of heading a criminal organization, their daughters, wives and mothers step up to take over the leadership and maintain Golden Dawn’s position as the fifth largest party in Greece for the upcoming elections.

As the elections and trial unfold, the Norwegian film crew is getting surprising access to the secret chamber and family lives of one of Europe’s most notorious nationalist parties – exposing the mindset, values and personalities of the people on the front lines of modern nationalism.
