Fascism inc. (83 min.) (2014) Producer: Frosso Tsouka, Director: Aris Chatzistefanou (Greek)
Director Aris Chatzistefanou’s films look at Greece during the time of neo-nazi and fascist movements, pointing to capitalism’s attempt to profit by attacking the working class and trade unionism from banning strikes to complete deregulation, allowing the wealthy to acquire land and resources. Chatzistefanou’s film Fascism Inc. explores the role of fascism in Greece during World War II, and its development in contemporary times. The film also looks at the growth and politics of the Greek neo-fascist group Golden Dawn, and how their ideology and methods are encouraged by corporate-controlled media, which blames immigrants for the growing economic crisis.

The rise of immigrant bashing which is taking place in the U.S. is, as the film shows, directly correlated to the growing economic crisis, and this well-edited film makes the connection concrete.
Following the film, producer Frosso Tsouka and San Francisco State professor Zeese Papanikolas will discuss the economic and social developments in Greece and the rise of Golden Dawn and other neo-nazi groups.
