Freedom Besieged


Freedom Besieged is a feature length documentary film concerning the current economic and political climate of Greece amidst what has been described as “one of the greatest economic collapses in human history". The film uniquely documents the lives of young Greeks and community leaders searching for hope and identity amidst the doom-and-gloom messaging of what is known by many, simply, as “The Crisis”.  Freedom Besieged is a call to come together to help write a new chapter for Greece. The featured speakers in Freedom Besieged include Noam Chomsky, world-renowned intellectual, Michael Dukakis, former US Presidential Nominee & Governor, Pyrros Dimas, four-time Olympic medalist, Giorgos Karagounis, Greek football legend and many others that will enlighten us on the work that needs to be done on the ground in Greece – and what we, too, can do to help make a real difference.
