Citizen Europe is a cinematic journey across Europe through the experience of five young participants of Erasmus – the world’s biggest mobility programme. The film’s characters leave the comfort zone of their country, to work, volunteer or study in different European countries, overcoming their fears and adapting to different mentalities. Set against the current European crisis, fueled by unprecedented youth unemployment and fears about the refugee situation, their journeys offer a bird’s-eye view of a continent in transition, giving a sense of what the future holds.
A Greek-French-Irish-Bulgarian film by Anemon, Seppia, Underground and Agitprop in co-production with Arte, ERT and Screen Ireland, with the support of the Grand Est region, Procirep-Angoa, the Bulgarian National Film Center and in collaboration with RTE, RTP , MRKTV, CYBC and BTV.
After the screening, we invite you to talk with alumni of various European scholarship programs.
