The National Park documentary was created by Blacklight LTD on behalf of the Management Agency of the Messolonghi Lagoon in the framework of the Operational Program for Environment and Sustainable Development from the with and Tasos Katsaris as the director. The documentary has already been screened on Greek National television with great success!
The “Alima” documentary, a co-production of Ethnofest and MedINA, directed by Loukas Koumpouris and Nikolas Papadimitriou, is based on the ethnographic observation of the daily routine of the lagoon’s fishermen, especially its traditional “ivari” fishermen, that for centuries have fished in a similar manner. The aim of this event is to raise awareness on sustainable development and environmental protection, in an area where natural beauty is outstanding yet threatened by human activity.
