For several years now, a new young generation of poets have been raising their voices in Greece, combining the rich, lyrical tradition of the country with the urgent topics of the present. The subjects engaged with by this generation extend from the possibilites for perceiving the world through language to descriptions of everyday life in Athens streets.
Furthermore we are showing the poetry film "I Apofasi" ("The Decision", director: George Drivas, 2007).
With the kind support of the Greek Culture Foundation, Berlin branch, the Hellenic Republic – Ministry for Culture and Tourism.
