‘BAREFOOT BRIGADE’: The film «Barefoot Brigade,» which was produced in Greece using Greek amateur actors, is being shown in New York at the Globe cinema. The film relates the resistance of children to the German occupation during World War II. The producer of the film is Mr Peter Voudouris, its director Mr Greg Tallas and scriptwriter Mr Nikos Katsiotis. FOOD MARKET: Transactions on the food market were limited last week, although there were sufficient basic food items. There was domestic meat in all categories and quality and at the same prices as in the previous week, as well as poultry and a plentiful supply of fresh fish. There was also an abundance of fruit and vegetables at reasonable prices. Tomatoes continue to be expensive. BREAD AND TOMATOES: After starting out at high prices, summer products are now becoming cheaper as they become more plentiful. Cucumbers are already becoming more widely available to more people before their companion in salads, the ripe red tomato, that queen of all foods. Promoting bread and tomatoes is a wonderful austerity measure that protects Greek finance ministers from public outcry.
