On Saturday, 31st March 2018, at 7.30pm, NeMe is pleased to invite you to Gritos en el cielo (Shouts in the sky), a video documentary by Sakari Laurila which will be screened within the framework of Video March.
Gritos en el Cielo focuses on the 2011 spring of revolt in Barcelona, sparked by the financial crisis, imposed austerity measures and their resulting harsh social consequences. It is a documentary about human dignity investigated through several stories of people from different professions and social classes fighting for equality and fairness in the midst of this turmoil. Gritos en el Cielo is also a historical document of a generation that rose from general apathy to express the emotional and intellectual critical forces long suppressed in the youth of Europe. It was the time of incredibly beautiful days full of exceptional dreams, impressive collective non-hierarchical activism and of standing up for one’s will to live with dignity.
The documentary will be followed with a discussion with Sakari Laurila moderated by filmaker, Adonis Florides.
Venue: NeMe Arts Centre, Corner of Ellados and Enoseos streets, Limassol
