Homage to the European family
Family is one of the domains where the greatest changes have taken place over generations since the beginning of history. It has been also the core of European society and the vital energy that moves countries and changes almost every aspect of life, from economics, to politics, to arts. The Seventh Eurochannel Short Films Tour will capture this familiar spirit and treat the viewers and cinema lovers this 2015 with stories about families, their challenges and greatest accomplishments.
The nuclear European family traditionally consisted of a married father and mother with several children, but today this is only one option among many. Despite the modern day variances, Europeans continue to value family ahead of friends, work, leisure time, politics and religion as the most important element in their lives. That is why, this new edition of the Eurochannel Short Films Tour will pay homage to its crucial importance.
The concept of family has always played a dynamic role in shaping the history of mankind. From banking, to arts, to science, the influences of different familiar clans have constantly innovated the way we see today. In politics, religion and finance, European families like the Rothschilds or the Tudors changed the way we see economics, pray and vote today. The Medicis, shaped the world of art by sponsoring the greatest Renaissance artists, and the Curies changed human science forever; to name a few.
