1648. The long way to peace




Hannes Schuler, 90/52 min. (Prod: Berlin producers, DE)


The first Peacemakers in history

Europe is in the midst of crises: Brexit, new nationalisms, the refugee crisis, communautarisms… Only twice in history have such challenges been overcomed by diplomatic activity: At the Vienna Congress in 1814/15 and with the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, which founded the legislation for an international peace seJlement in Europe. A revision of this peace seJlement can deliver a valuable lesson for the crisis management of today. A dramatic documentary creating a modern narrative of suspense when depicting this historic event. The scripted scenes are commented upon and contextualised by historical experts.
