A single continent, Europe, and never more than this year the feeling of being united by the common fight against the pandemic, shooting has started on Europe C-19, a collective documentary film by five European authors who tell the experience in their countries.

In the five short films, lasting 15 minutes each, the directors tell how the epidemic and the consequent containment measures have affected European citizens in social, psychological and economic terms. The stories are seen through the eyes of these great authors / directors and describe, with an artistic and cinematographic added value, how much Europe is experiencing in this 2020.

The docufilm already counts on the support of FFF-Bayern, Casa Kafka Pictures and the Belgian Voo-BeTV.
