ORAMA PICTURES proudly presents BENEATH THE OLIVE TREE

Narrated by Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis 

*******

“Beneath the Olive Tree” is based on secret journals found buried beneath an olive tree on the island of Trikeri, which served as a concentration camp during the Greek Civil War (1946-1949).

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

The journals, buried for close to three decades, tell the inspiring stories of the survival of the thousands of women political exiles during the war, and explore the involvement of the US and British governments at the time.

Director Stavroula Toska takes the journey from New York to Greece to shed light on a part of modern history the world knows very little about, and in the process discovers a family secret that shakes her to her core.

 *******

Beneath the Olive Tree, a feature documentary, had its first screening (as a work in progress) on March 7, 2015 at the First Time Film Festival in New York city where it won the award for Outstanding Achievement in Editing!  BTOT screened to a sold out audience and received its first review:
