Reviews of the Film: Solidaritet


“The Birdcage” revolves around the austerity measures in Greece, a few days after the historic Greek referendum. Ten leading thinkers in democratic politics, that include the former Greek Minister of Education, Aristides Baltas, the philosopher Srejko Horvat and the author and Cornel Prof. Jodi Dean, take turns in a room, minutes away from the Greek parliament and the tear gasses of Syntagma square, in answering the question: “How do economics affect politics today and what consequences does this have for the future of democracy?”
