Palikari: Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre tells the story of Greek immigrant and labor leader Louis Tikas (Elias Spantidakis) and one of the decisive moments of the American labor movement. Filmmakers Lamprini Thoma and Nikolaos Ventouras examined the memories, the history and the legacy of Tikas and those involved in the bloody events called the Ludlow Massacre, interviewing prominent historians, artists and descendants of Ludlow miners and incorporating archival footage and photographs that share an unknown American story.  (Co-sponsors: the Modern Greek Foundation, the UM Modern Greek Program, and ThePressProject)
