A low, intense war is being fought on the streets of Europe and the aim is on fascism.

This documentary takes us behind the masks of the militant groups called antifascists. In 2013 a group of armed nazis attacks a peaceful demonstration in Stockholm where several people are injured. In Greece the neo-nazi party Golden Dawn becomes the third largest in the election, and in Malmö the activist Showan Shattak and his friends are attacked by a group of nazis with knives and he ends up in a coma.

In this portrait of the antifascists in Greece and Sweden, we get to meet key figures that explain their view on their radical politics but also question the level of their own violence and militancy.

The film will be followed by a discussion.

$5 donation much appreciated, but no one turned away! Complimentary snacks and popcorn, as always.
