故事梗概 Synopsis

1977 年,一群朋友创建了希腊同性恋解放运动A.K.O.E.。在1990年之前,这一运动的杂志《Amfi》及其位于扎隆古街传奇地下室的办公室一直是希腊LGBT群体的避难所。AKOE和Amfi也由此成为了刚刚开始觉醒良知和组织起来的群体的第一个参照点。这将是一场争取生存权、幸福权和爱的权利的革命,这是它的故事首次被讲述。

In 1977 a group of friends created A.K.O.E. – the Greek Homosexual Liberation Movement. The movement’s magazine – “Amfi” – and its offices at the legendary basement on Zalongou street, will become a place of refuge for the Greek LGBT community until 1990. AKOE and Amfi, will be the first reference points for a community that is just beginning to gain conscience and organize. It will be a revolution for the right to exist, the right to happiness, the right to love. Its story is told for the first time.

导演阐述 Director’s Statement


Ever since I was a member of AKOE in the mid 1980s, I had been dreaming of some day being able to make a film about the movement. My dream was to bring forward the feeling of liberation and of contributing to a higher cause, a feeling that was prominent in all the members. The story had never been told and the young Greek LGBT+ generation had no knowledge of these actions that – in the context of the times – were truly revolutionary. The purpose of the film was to put the historical facts in order and to inspire the LGBT+ community to continue fighting for inclusion and against oppression.
