This is probably the most impressive Docs on Wheels setting so far! We curated four environmental screenings within the framework of the Vovousa Festival in the Pindus mountains in collaboration with NGO Still and Moving. At an altitude of 1000 meters, Vovousa was a traditional logger’s village, quiet and sleepy – up until 2013. Named after the roar of the Aöos river, which splits the village right down the middle, Vovousa rose up in arms when a proposed dam threatened to destroy a way of life that has been passed down through generations, violating national park territory in the process. The protest was peaceful and it took the form of a festival, which has been injecting the area with a condensed dose of culture once a year. In an attempt to revitalize the area, screenings were held in old timber warehouses, courtyards and churchyards.
