Council of Europe

Strasbourg, the birth of a political Europe.



The city of Strasbourg, France and the French rotating presidency of the Committee of ministers of the Council of Europe missioned us to communicate on the birth of the Council of Europe in 1949 and the choice of Strasbourg as its permanent seat.

A thorough journalistic and scientific research was done to identify key archive material, footage, and interview partners. Interviews were shot on the very locations where the most significant archive images were taken in 1949. All this material helped produce a documentary film mixing interviews from historians and witnesses.

This documentary film was presented at the 70th anniversary ceremony and is now used by the city of Strasbourg in its permanent exhibition.
