Thanasis Veggos does what he does best – explores the predicament of an ordinary individual who unknowingly becomes part of the larger political picture.

While trying to take a photograph, a lowly yet ambitious photojournalist finds himself the sole witness to the death of a dictator. He is also inadvertently handed the code to the dictator’s bank account, which his children are desperate to obtain.

Dictator Calls Thanasis is particularly interesting in its prophesising of the fall of the Greek dictator George Papadopoulos during his decline in 1973.
