POST IMPERIAL SYNDROME

Directed by Sergio Ghizzardi

Synopsis

<p>In the context of globalization, what remains of the European model? What is Europe’s place in global governance? One man could perhaps help to seal the breaches: the new President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy. He is not a man to flee his responsibilities. He learns fast. Step by step, he is making progress. There is nothing univocal about him. Diplomats acknowledge his great skill at finding compromises and his strong determination, which shatters the image of a grey man, without charisma. Stuck between the Franco-German couple, Great Britain and the rest of the 27 member states, he must try to answer one question:</p> <p>« How can the continuity of European benefits be ensured while at the same time adapting to the upheavals of the world? »</p> <p>It is a challenge on a par with that met by the founding fathers of Europe sixty years ago. In 30 years, Europe will represent barely 6% of the world population and 12% of its GDP. The survival of the European model is at stake.</p> <p><em>"There is a tide in the affairs of men."</em><strong> W.Shakespeare</strong></p>
