PRESS RELEASE

Photography Exhibition: Raspberry Reich GR

Outview Film Festival 7-15 May 2015- Greek Film Archive

Plagiarism is essential, progress implies it.

It is the year 2014 Greece is under the shadow of Antonis Samaras. Things are looking grim for LGBT rights until a small group of gay men decide to take matters into their own hands.

Photographer Menelas is inspired by the infamous movie Raspberry Reich by Bruce LaBruce and brings the pink revolution to Greece in 2014. His photos comment on the political and social reality without forgetting the LGBT community itself.

The exhibition is complementing the short movie of the same title that will be shown during the festival.
