Through six (or seven) 52 min. episodes, this new series (sequel to "A Day in Europe" collection) puts the spotlight on what unites the inhabitants of Europe and what makes them interact within their national boundaries, as well as across the continent and with the rest of world.
Europe is a continent and a political and economic entity as much as it represents a collection of communities and nations that are interconnected by history, culture, movement of people, huge infrastructure and also by a range of urban and rural landscapes that are amazingly diverse.
But Europe is facing a “stress test” as climate change, demographics, pollution, technology and the rise of competing international powers challenge its welfare, questions its values and threatens its biotopes.
In its “seen from above” narrative, the series will tell the “living” Europe, as we experience it with our senses. Thus, the narrative highlights the many - and often unnoticed - complex realities that make Europe so “immediately recognisable”.
The story-telling runs two parallel threads: one, offering concrete human stories filmed “on the ground” to support the progression of each investigation; another offering a broader “from above” perspective in its figurative and concrete meaning, offering spectacular aerial visions of fascinating European landscapes as well as 3D visualization of individual or collective movement, behaviour patterns or remarkable social or economic trends that would otherwise go unnoticed.
