The idea come up during a conversation on Skype. We were talking about our mutual life situations, starting by the unbearable uncertainty on work and the inability to act as change motors of History that flows around us. Anger and pain of greek people made the rest. We decided to put our skills into play to tell a crisis that starts with ourselves and explodes in the outside world.
The term “crisis” derives from the greek Krisis, it’s like a turning point from which everything could become better or worse but it can’t remain as it is. That's how we feel every day, on the brink of change, and we don’t accept the idea that our freedom of choice may fall because of external impositions or pure laziness.
We want to travel across Greece, starting from Athens and heading north. We hope to find the History we feel so elusive, we don’t want to content with the news offered by the mainstream media, we want to see what happens down there with our own eyes and return it with passion and lucidity. So we want to find the ultimate meaning of our profession.
Our real needs go far beyond the € 600 required. We’ll leave from Rome on 8th March, we will remain in Greece for about a month, we hope to bring back home at least 20 hours of filming, we are in contact with many people (historians, economists, politicians, students, ordinary citizens) in order to collect as many voices as possible to build a complex, accomplished tale. And we’ll do all this things solely relying on our savings.
Nevertheless, this is our first attempt at crowdfunding. As we don’t know what kind of feedback will our project obtain, we prefer to keep low our claims and keep high the goals. In fact, if we reach or exceed the target of 600 euros, the bid would be deducted from your PayPal account, otherwise nothing will happen.
Meanwhile, thank you for your time, any kind of help will be really appreciated.
Even only two euro can make the difference for us, with PayPal you don’t have additional costs and if you don’t own a PayPal you can put together your friends and relatives or you can just spread the voice.
