Eleftherios Venizelos 1910-1927 (Greek: Ελευθέριος Βενιζέλος) is a 1980 Greek biographical film of one of the most famous leaders of the Greek political scene of the 20th century Eleftherios Venizelos. The movie stars Dimitris Murat, Manos Katrakis and Anna Kalouta.


The story was set in August 1909 when the movie presented in sound and Venizelos' ideas and Venizelianism for a larger Greece. It describes the capture of Thessaloniki and Ioannina and later the National Schism and up to the impending war in Europe, World War I. Venizelos resigned from the political life after the tie in the elections that followed the Asia Minor Catastrophe and returned to his relatives in Crete.
