The Weekend Neos Kosmos : 1 November 2014
In a special event for the closing night of the Delphi Bank 21st Greek Film Festival in Sydney, a Q&A session will be hosted with David Hill, the president of the International Association for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures. As attempts are being made right now to re-unify the Parthenon marbles, on its closing night the Greek Film Festival will screen a very timely film which presents the struggle in a highly charged and dramatic fashion. The film looks at a hypothetical scenario when two Athenian attorneys pursue litigation against the British Museum to return the classical Greek sculptures to their rightful home. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with David Hill, founder and chairman of the Association for the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles. The event will be held on Sunday 2 November at 7.00 pm, at Palace Cinemas, Norton Street, Leichardt.
