Burning from the inside

Burning from the inside is a political documentary coming out from the streets of Athens and Berlin. Using the rise of the neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn as the main axe, it exposes the fascist structures and the social disintegration witch invaded Greece, as experienced from the Greek immigrants in Germany. Giving their own fight against the Nazi outburst, they collaborate with Germans and they try to create a ‘voice’ which speaks about the constant violations of human rights, and the deliberate silence of Europe. By juxtaposing the events in the  two countries, the film tries to impose questions on the functionality of democracy, it ‘universalizes’ the Nazi problem, questions the role of Germany as the ‘queen of Europe’, shows the amazing power that the people can assume when united, and unfolds the reasons which made Greece a country Burning from the inside.
