At 20: 00p.m,” Dry Stone-Wall, Supports of the Aegean”, a documentary from the Greek panorama of the Hellenic Society of Environment and culture, by Lydia Karras & Amalia Zepou.
It captures authentic moments of traditional masons on Sifnos island, who communicate by improvising with couplets while teaching volunteers the art of building and preserving dry stone walls, this ancient and rich technique of “Dry stone”. The Dry stone walls not only save the soil from erosion and the island from desertification, but also frame a network of trails that attracts more and more hikers, extending the tourist season in time and quality. In that way, during the course of the film, the viewer also experiences the Dry stone rescue. We remind you that since November 2018 UNESCO has the technique of Dry stone in the monuments of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of mankind.
