The Promise of Tomorrow 1940- 1960 59min
The Promise of Tomorrow' highlights the first generation
Greek Americans who were raised in southern California
from 1943 to the early 1960's.
This documentary appeals to anyone of immigrant
parentage. Personal stories of duality and great ethnic
pride are told in a heartwarming and often humorous vein.
Academy award winner, Olympia Dukakis, hosts and
Our story begins with harrowing accounts of several WWII
veterans, members of the OSS, (a pre CIA Operational
Group,) and survivors of the Greek Civil War. Sixty
thousand Greek Jews were transported to the death
camps, as described by a Holocaust survivor. Rare
footage and private photographs highlight these stories.
After the war, the expansionism of the Greek American
community in Los Angeles Angeles begins with the building
St. Sophia Cathedral. Under the leadership of Charles P.
Skouras, movie executive and owner of Fox Coast West
theatres, we watch the groundbreaking ceremony and
building of this magnificent structure emulating Agia (Saint)
Sophia in Constantinople. We hear how the first
generation struggled for acceptance.
This 'duality' of being Greek at home and American at
school stays with them throughout their adult life. Trying to
balance both cultures is inspiring and often hilarious. Also,
many well known personalities in politics and entertainment
express their connection with Greek America.
