A program of short stories that would never have existed without the internet.
Love Your Neighbour
How do you picture your European neighbours? Nationals from the 28 EU countries were asked this question. Stereotypes? Truths? Fantasies? It’s for you to see.
Among Europeans, clichés are long-lived!
Directors have met citizens in the 28 countries of the Union. They have asked them to imagine their close or more distant neighbours. Back in France, they have selected one portrait per country, which they have then painted directly onto the speaker’s photo, thus morphing the narrator into his subject.
Match the painted characters with the corresponding photos in the fresco and discover an original portrait of 2014 Europe, playfully showing how we perceive each others.
Now it’s your turn. Do share it, comment on it, and picture your neighbour!
