On 27 April, two weeks after featuring on the programme of the International Journalism Festival of Perugia, The Great European Disaster Movie was screened at another prestigious Italian venue, Ca’ Foscari University in Venice. 


In the debate that followed the film makers Annalisa Piras and Bill Emmott (pictured above) were joined by three Ca’Foscari professors: Prof Carlo Carraro, (Professore Ordinario di Econometria), Francesca Coin (Ricercatrice di Sociologia Generale) and Prof Fabrizio Marrella  (Professore Associato di Diritto Internazionale). The event was presented by the University's chancellor Michele Bugliesi.

Prof Carraro had in the past already hosted Annalisa e Bill at debate which followed the screening of their previous film, Girlfriend in a coma.

Here is Bill Emmott being interviewed about the The Great European Disaster Movie:

Update: On Europe Day 2015 the University featured the film once again in three simultaneous screenings in different faculties.

Join Wake Up Europe!

Wake Up Europe is a campaign brought to you by the Wake Up Foundation. It was sparked by the themes explored in The Great European Disaster Movie by Annalisa Piras and Bill Emmott.

We believe in the values that inspired the European project but that this project isn't working. Europe is sleep-walking towards disaster. We must wake up Europe so that we can save Europe from itself.

This job is too important to be left to the elites, the media, the political parties alone: ordinary people must be encouraged to discuss what Europe they want to see.
