“The Plan” – “to Schedio” A Documentary for North Euboea Part1:”Εight-tenths and report”

HOW NORTHERN EVIA GOT BURNT

An hour and twenty minutes with testimonies and documents that prove how a fire that could have been contained in time, managed with zero wind and “non-extinguishing orders”, to burn more than 52 thousand acres of land.
Forests, animals, villages, crops, the toils of a lifetime were left to their fate and turned to ashes by a government which expelled the inhabitants from their villages while never taking care of the protection of the forests or the fire. Instead, it plans to invest in new land, in the name of “development” and “reconstruction”.
In the second part, which will be ready soon, we will prove “why” North Evia and its people’s livelihood and dreams got burned.

The Plan is an independent creation of Nelli Psarrou and Ioannis Lazarou, based on the financial support of all.

All the music heard in our film was kindly provided by their creators, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

You can choose to view it with English or Greek subtitles.

North Evia “The Plan”- Trailer 2nd

North Evia: “The Plan”

Documentary for the destruction of North Evia in the wildfires of August 2021.

The destruction of North Evia is being mourned worldwide. More than 600,000 acres were burned out in a 8-days fire, mostly advancing with no wind! 70% of Greece’s pine-tree honey was produced here, and 70% of pine tar! Not to mention  olive oil or wine production. Its total destruction signifies not only the loss of a wild dense forest and cultivation land but, most importantly, the loss of a lifestyle in simplicity and harmony with the environment and a paradigm for “urban people” in their quest for solutions to the climate crisis. This disaster, even if it wasn’t predetermined, it was certainly allowed to happen. So are the floods – that everybody is afraid of right now.

How and why Evia’s natural wealth was lost? What is the future of the locals there, and what are the plans of the government and companies for the area?

In this documentary-in-progress, we will investigate and answer these questions. However, we need your help in order to accomplish the task.
