Montreal Greek Film Festival
As the headlines talk about austerity measures, strikes and violent protests in Greece, Avra Georgiou prepares to present her country to Quebeckers in a very different light. She's the director and programmer of the fledgling Montreal Greek Film Festival.
Avra Georgiou grew up in Greece. She now spends most of her time flying between Athens, Los Angeles - where she has another Greek film festival - and Montreal. She spoke with Sona about the current troubles in her country and her role as a sort of ambassador for Greek culture.
