The New Greek Americans

United States, 2019, 70 min – DOCUMENTARY

The story begins with Greek Americans during the ‘60s embracing these changing times despite their conservative upbringings. Each decade influences the Greek community with events such as the Invasion of Cyprus and the nomination of Michael S. Dukakis for President of the United States. Heartfelt and humorous stories are also shared reflecting “Growing up Greek.”  Second and third generations display their active participation in their beloved ancestral heritage, but is it enough to keep Greek culture alive in America?  Olympia Dukakis is our on-camera host and narrator. This project is produced by the Greek Heritage Society of Southern California.
