Dear friends,

I would like to bring to your attention a great new documentary that is currently in production, documenting the water struggles around Greece. It is being filmed by a group of militant filmmakers coordinated by researcher Nelly Psarou. The same people did "Golfland?" a few years ago, a doc about the disastrous effect of golf course development on the environment and local communities. You can watch "Golfland?" online here:

The working title of the new documentary is "Wa(te)rdrops", and it aims to present, through in-depth research and fieldwork, struggles concerning water around Greece, including the struggle against the privatization of Thessaloniki's water company (EYATH), against the gold mines in Chalkidiki and against local water reserve appropriation efforts in Volos and Crete.

You can see the visually appealling first few trailers in the documentary's web page,

Thessaloniki: (

Volos: (

Make sure you activate the subtitles (English or Spanish) on the top right corner of the player.

It is a proudly independent production relying on crowdfunding for its completion, and the outcome will be freely accessible under a creative commons license.

If you have the possibility, I suggest you contribute using the "Donate" button on the bottom of the documentary's webpage. Circulate to anyone that might be interested!

Thanks for your attention!
I wish you a creative and militant 2014!
Teo - Thessaloniki
