Kino Klassika as a part of its film season A World To Win which marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution by looking at 100 years of Revolution on film brings you a political thriller by Costa Gavras.
Based on true events, “Z” is the award-winning drama that chronicles the assassination of liberal Greek politician Gregoris Lambrakis in 1963 and its cover up by military and government officials. On its release, “Z” immediately became one of the cinematic sensations of the late sixties, and was the first foreign film in 31 years to earn an Oscar nomination for best picture.
