AT THE HEART OF EUROPE

2006

Directed by Sergio Ghizzardi

Synopsis

On November 17, 2004, Jose Manuel Durao Barroso became the first President of the European Commission of the 25 member states.

We accompanied the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Durao Barroso, at every stage of his life and career during 6 months.

The documentary seeks to discover how much scope national governments, European members of Parliament, pressure groups and journalists give the President of the Commission. In a form of a survey, we discover step by step the mystery of power, or its absence, within the Eurocracy. We embark on a trip into the heart of the European Union and sneak into one of its buildings, Berlaymont, the EC headquarters, where men and women have to meet the requirements of a world undergoing perpetual change. In Brussels, some 1000 journalists are accredited to the European Union, more than in Washington.
