“We loved Beneath the Olive Tree, Greek-born/New York-based filmmaker Stavroula Toska’s gripping documentary about women who survived the lesser-known Greek Civil War and kept detailed journals throughout atrocities such as internment, torture, and even straight up murder. And apparently, so did the folks at the Santa Fe Film Festival as the film took home the prize in the Best Documentary category this weekend.
The Greek Civil War is entirely under-acknowledged to this day, even by the Greek government, and our review stated that, “Must-see would be an understatement.” We sat down with Toska to get a little extra information about the history, her process and why these women are all way more badass than you’ll ever be.”
