a reflection on labour, love and diaspora in Greece
a documentary by Anita Makris
LECHOVO is a personal portrait of a village centred in a mountain region in the NW of Greece. It has strongly been affected by the Greek recession and there seems to be no end to it.
Director Anita Makris "As I entered this small village, where the Greek side of family originated from, I saw a place of endless emigration.
This is a film about losing your work and the basis of your existence. And I wanted to show, how these forgotten and neglected places try to find ways out of a desperate situation."
LECHOVO is not only about a specific place, but stands for the loss of the basis of existence in the age of neoliberalism. And how people in Greece try to find ways out of it.
