Marianne Metropoulos' screenplay and beautiful story set within the prism of the Greek War of Independence in 1821 is now a star-studded feature film playing at AMC Theaters nationwide (see list below). The film is produced by NHS members, the Metropoulos family. NHS urges our members, their respective families and friends to see & share the film especially with the next generation. The Greek spirit and quest for freedom is captured within the context of the impressive feature film that will teach and inspire all.
The story is simple: a young Greek village girl falls in love with a handsome Turkish officer. The couple is besieged by conflicts posed within the context of the Greek War of Independence following four centuries of Ottoman Rule. We taken for granted the herculean efforts and sacrifices of our forebears. Share the story and film especially with the next generation. Their story is our story--one that we celebrate every March 25th that resonates with all free people.
America's eloquent statesman and orator, Daniel Webster (Webster's Dictionary) was so moved by the Greek War of Independence he issued an epic addresses on the floor of the House of Representatives applauding the Greeks and their quest for freedom. The NHS echo's Daniel Webster's sentiments and urges our members to see Cliff's of Freedom! Znto Ellas & Kudos to Marianne, Dean, Evan & Daren!
