Documentary on 2007 mega fires in Peloponnese, Greece

«The Fire Factor» is a documentary that investigates the causes of the fatal 2007 fires in the Peloponnese. Scientists, specialists but, most importantly, the people who were in the front-line of the fight to put out the fires, talk about the catastrophe and its causes.The film draws two basic conclusions: firstly, that the Greek forest protection service needs urgent re-organisation and that, since 2007, almost nothing has changed. The 2009 fire in northeast Attica is a dramatic illustration that the huge problems and shortfalls of the forest protection system, remain.
