It’s a documentary portraying the 2012’s Europe. A trip from Galicia, in the Iberian Peninsula’s Northwest extreme, to the Pireo in Greece, across Portugal, Spain and Italy (PIGS)*. It’s a critical eye to the CRISIS. A practical and brave answer to that questions we should ask: What is the crisis? Where does it come from? Where does it lead us? And now what?

CRISIS

An optimistic answer

The crisis that was a deceleration and now seems an hecatomb had to last two years and it’ll make six. We don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, and if we saw it we would think that it’s the train coming to finish us. The degree of collective pessimism gripping us is more desperate and immobilizer than financial imponderables. We have fear, and as british sociologist Frank Furedi said long before the crisis arose, ubiquitous and persistent fear generates doom and resignation. We need to visualize alternative answers, other possible futures, because if we don’t imagine them, we will never be able to make them happen.

The project is planned in two different stages: The main characters will tell their stories, where they are developing their projects, directly to the camera (Canon 7D), through little videobooth style interviews. These microinterviews will be uploaded to the Web and Social networks, thus building an interactive map of the trip, so the audience will be able to interact almost on realtime. At the end of the trip, a narrative documentary will be built complementing selected statements of the main characters with contextual information and images. The documentary will be presented to national and international Documentaries Festivals.

The project can’t be made without your help. With this campaign I hope to cover the basic costs needed for such a project, which are: fuel, videographic materials, production of the final documentary and share with collaborators and general audience


If you tell your story, you’ll have your little corner in the web as “people”, with contact information (if you want) to spread your proposal


If you offer a place to spend the night and/or food aid (either in food or with 10 euros), you’ll be included in the credits as “hosts”


If you offer fuel or 20 euros, you’ll be included as “contributors”
