CONVENTION

2003

Directed by Sergio Ghizzardi, Patrick Delfosse

Synopsis

Documentary on the drafting of the first European constitution following the process of decision making by the decision makers and the consequences  for the new soon to be enlarged Europe.

Over a period of a year we followed the human and  political process of the creation of the first draft of a European  Constitution. The forum to enable this process was the 'Convention', the  controlling body of the Convention the Preasidium. The stories of the five  members of the Preasidium, and the public and behind the scenes dealings  of the nations as they joust for the best terms, unfolds, against the  visions for a united and integrated Europe that has recently expanded to  25 countries, unique footage and access allowed us to make one of the most  intriguing and informative accounts of the forming of the new European  Constitution.

Regarding major actors such as Valery Giscard  D’Estang (Ex-President of France), Jean Luc Dehaene (Ex-Prime Minister of  Denmark), Giuliano Amato (Ex-Prime Minister if Italy), Ana Palacio (Ex-Foreign  Minister of Spain) and John Bruton (Ex-Taioseach of Ireland).

Completed and aired on eight television stations in  Europe: RTE, YLE, RTBF, ERT3, TV5, IMAGE+, LCP-AN, POLIS, (Ireland,  Belgium, France, Greece, Finland).
