Comments and Additional Information

I am interested in having contact with anyone working in Greek cinema (broadly defined as Greeks anywhere working in film in some capacity) and anyone working on projects related to Greek America. I am particularly interested in communications with anyone doing work on Greek American participation in working class and leftist movements
