Our final goal is to create a web-documentary, a cross-media with videos, audio, texts and pictures.
Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland.
Five countries on the brink of the abyss.
Even Europe is sinking in a very deep crisis: employment, health care, welfare, industrial system; everything is falling apart.
Eurobond, fiscal compact, spending review, sackings: are those the best ingredients of the recipe?
We think that the human being should be in the center, and that we can find - inside us - the best way out.
With our limited resources we have produced the first two episodes: the Greek one
and the Spanish one
Now we need your support to keep going on.
In every country we are going to visit we will try to balance the economic and social framework with suggestions and ideas from figures who can help us to bring again in the center our soul, our thoughts, searching a new perspective.
The next step, with your help, would be Portugal, then Ireland and Italy.
We are planning to finish shootings and video editing by the next spring.
