Joker in Athena. The middle class joins the revolution (and doesn’t like it at all).
November 16, 2022
On the occasion of the fuzz caused by Romain Gavras’ new film, Athena, Nikos Mavridis and Konstantinos Kostouros discuss about the depiction of the urban revolution in the contemporary cinema. They go back to Todd Philips’ Joker and compare the two films.
So, how the two directors see urban revolutions and the violence that often accompanies them? Is democracy in danger, and if so, what the creators of these films think about it?
“Joker in Athena” is a conversation about the urban revolution, its aesthetics and the feelings that we all have while we see it depicted in the movies.
