Dir. Harry Mavromihalis. 2019, 103 mins. DCP. In English. Olympia follows the life and career of Oscar-winning actress Olympia Dukakis as she navigates her world and goes on a journey to her ancestral home in Greece. Exhibiting both candor and vulnerability, this revealing documentary shows how she overcame obstacles as the daughter of immigrants and as a woman in a male-dominated society. The film includes appearances by Whoopi Goldberg, Laura Linney, Lainie Kazan, Austin Pendleton, and Michael Dukakis. CBS News calls Olympia “a thoroughly captivating film, befitting its arresting star.”
Following the screening, Olympia Dukakis will be interviewed by Foster Hirsch, film historian and Brooklyn College professor. View trailer.
