With elections looming, Greece’s Golden Dawn suffers a blow when a number of their key leaders are put behind bars. This far-right party faces an uncertain future until an unlikely trio of women step up to fill the shoes their fathers, sons and husbands left behind. Norwegian filmmaker Håvard Bustnes gains unprecedented and astonishing access to these women as they continue the cycle of hatred and aggression. Stepping inside the dark world of one of Europe’s most notorious nationalist parties, the Nick Broomfield produced Golden Dawn Girls is a bizarre, disturbing exposé that reveals the complex power dynamics that underpin extreme political ideologies.
