Political intrigue drives this Costa-Gavras masterpiece, as a journalist tries to uncover the truth behind the murder of a prominent professor, despite the government’s cover-up efforts. The drama is a fictionalized account of the 1963 killing of Grigoris Lambrakis, who led the forces opposing the placement of US Polaris missiles in Greece.

Winner of 12 major awards, including the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

“Z is a punchy political pic that mixes action, violence, and conspiracy on a robust, lavish scale.” — Variety

The screening of the restored digital print marks the 50th anniversary of Z’s original release.

Legendary director Costa-Gavras will attend for a post-film audience Q&A.

In 2015, with the Greek economy in tatters and the country on the verge of bankruptcy, a new government rebels against the European Union’s demands to impose crippling austerity upon the country. Based on the book by former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, who led the negotiations with Greece’s creditors, this is a Greek tragedy for our modern times.
