Something's up with the water

On Monday, February 24, at 19.30, SaveGreekWater the initiative for the non privatization of water in Greece presented the information campaign "Something's up with the water" in the crowded first floor of the Art Meeting Point CAMP at Kotzia Square (Athens). Over 150 people attended the event, during which SaveGreekWater presented their activities and goals and those present had the chance to watch in preview all 6 tv web spots and listen to the 4 radio spots that constitute this phase of the campaign.

The TV spots - that the coming weeks will gradually be diffused on the internet - were directed by young Greek directors (Elena Dimitrakopoulou, Angelos Frantzis, Haris Stathopoulos, Savvas Katirtzidis, Paul Mafrikidis, Lefteris Haritos), who, each on his own artistic approachand creative look, gave visual form to the consequences of a risk that is more than real.

All spots were shot with the pro bono participation of about 250 people and are the first of the campaign since other directors and artists have already expressed their interest to participate in this collective effort.
