Eleftherios Kostans’ In Support of Liberty Screening at Golden State Film Festival

LOS ANGELES – The documentary film In Support of Liberty; Philadelphia and the Greek War of Independence by multi-award-winning Greek-American filmmaker Eleftherios Kostans will be screened on Sunday, February 26 at the Golden State Film Festival in Los Angeles.

The Greek-American Heritage Society of Philadelphia (GAHSP), according to its website, collaborated with producer and filmmaker Kostans in the development and production of this unique and introspective documentary film which focuses on the little known history of Philadelphia’s support and ties to the Greek War of Independence, and highlights how Philhellenes in the U.S. embraced and echoed Greek values during that period.

Narrated by Professor Alexander Kitroeff, the film introduces the viewer to early 19th century Philadelphia and utilizes a collection of montages, interviews, and moving, in-depth storytelling. The significant and distinct associations that are woven throughout the film bring the city’s historic past and its connection to the Greek War of Independence to light.

Kostans is a veteran international photographer who has worked for a variety of organizations, agencies, and publications, developing stories, news, and films about the Greek community of Philadelphia. He serves as the media representative of GAHSP, Vice-President of 69th Street Productions, and is co-founder of Cosmos Philly, a community-based Web TV and media program.
