Metaphor Entertainment, LLC. has wrapped filming of “December Riots" in Athens, while a second wave of riots swept Greece on December 6th, marking the two-year anniversary of the cold-blooded execution of 15 year-old student Alexander Gregoropoulos by two policemen in a downtown Athens café.  "December Riots," a film about the Gregoropoulos killing and the 2008 riots that followed, is produced, and directed by Dimitri Vorris with cinematography by Spyros Pagonis and written by Vorris and longtime collaborator Michael Kokkinaris .  The filmmaker acquired exclusive access to many never-before-seen court documents and evidence from the trial that followed Gregoropoulos’s killing.

The claustrophobic thriller focuses on a group of Europeans and Americans trapped in an art-house movie theater in downtown Athens during the 2008 riots.  23 year-old Brit actress Lucy Lemos, prolific actor Abraham Papadopoulos, popular comedian-director Nikos Yannikas anchor a youthful and talented supporting cast that includes Vivian Ioannou, Aris Athan, Nasos Pappas, Michael Angels, Louise Rheas, Aris Papargyropoulos, Maria Floratou,  Kostas Antalopoulos.
The film is independently financed by Metaphor Entertainment and United Arab Emirates-based Gulf Crown of the Sun.  

“The fact that we’re having riots again now in Greece, proves that people have not forgotten about Alexander or his senseless killing.  There is still fury and rage that needs to be purged and there are still questions that need to be answered.  While a feature film can’t answer  a myriad of questions and dilemmas will answer all the questions, I do hope ’December Riots’ honors Alexander’s memory,” said Vorris, who's now finishing post-production of the film.
