Plato's Academy - Ακαδημία Πλάτωνος

Η Ελληνική Κινηματογραφική Λέσχη Λουξεμβούργου θα προβάλει την Τρίτη 25 Ιανουαρίου στις 19.30 και την Τετάρτη 26 Ιανουαρίου στις 21.30 στην αίθουσα 2 του κινηματογράφου Utopia, την κωμωδία ΑΚΑΔΗΜΙΑ ΠΛΑΤΩΝΟΣ του Φίλιππου Τσίτου (Ελλάδα, 2009, 107 min, 35 mm, αγγλικοί υπότιτλοι). 

On Tuesday 25 January at 19:30 and on Wednesday 26 January at 21:30 in cinema Utopia, the Greek Cinema Club will screen the film AKADIMIA PLATONOS by Filippos Tsitos (Greece, 2009, colour, 107 min, 35 mm) in the Greek original version with English subtitles.

"Akadimia Platonos" was one of the three finalists shortlisted for the European Parliament's LUX Cinema Prize for 2010, along "Die Fremde" (director Feo Aladağ, Germany) and "Illégal" (Olivier Masset-Depasse (Belgium).

The European Parliament awards the annual LUX Prize to films that illustrate or question the founding values of European identity, explore Europe’s cultural diversity or contribute insights to the EU integration debate.

Awarding the prize to "Die Fremde", the EP President Jerzy Buzek said "the three films deal in a very sensitive way with the issue of identity, and the differences between a collective identity and an individual one. This is an important topic because in an ever more integrated Europe we will have to answer the question what it actually means to be European, and what our many identities - local, regional, national and European - mean in a united continent. If we want to create a true European demos, we have to be able to truly understand each other. What better way than through culture, art, music and, of course, films?" .
