Title : THE CIVILASATION THAT KILLS (Re)
Subject : HEALTH - ENVIRONMENT - NUTRICION

 

One of the greatest scandals in Modern Greek industrial history, the ELLENIT scandal is presented in this documentary: of the 250 workers at teh ELLENIT factory, 200 have died and 40 suffer severe diseases. The factory was processing asbestos, which is banned from use today. But the workers had no information of the dangers posed by asbestos at the time and worked for years without any precautions.

 

The research for this documentary, conducted for two years in Greece, the USA, Great Britain and France, examines the aspects of the civilisation that kills, the development model that prevailed after World War II, and exposes the role of plastic, vinylchloride, pesticides, insecticides and modern nutrition interests.
