Radical Democracy Video Challenge

This movie was made specially for "Radical Democracy: Video Challenge for an Open Europe Society 2014" video contest.

We are the generation of transformation, one that increasingly often sees politicians as selfish buffons. Is there a way of making politics that could satisfy us? Is there but one politician that we can trust with taking up the relentless fight for our case? We have found the perfect candidate for European Parliament, one that has strong nervous system, and remains calm under any circumstances. One that is famous for it's courage as a defender and for it's uncanny watchfulness. One that is friendly and playful, but can be fearless when the time comes. According to scientists, it is a labourious creature. A perfect candidate.

Dystopian visions of the future, critical satire and black comedy are the prisms through which young media-makers’ make us look at European society. Among the 212 videos submitted to the Radical Democracy: European Video Challenge 2014, 30 were selected as the Finalists and 10 were awarded in May 2014 as part of the Planete+ Doc Film Fesitval in Warsaw. Through ostensibly small interventions and employing diverse genres and techniques, these videos reflect on the meaning of freedom and the position of individuals vis-à-vis political and economic systems. Together, they are an inspiration to rethink democracy in Europe and what role we have ourselves in shaping our societies. They are brought together in this channel. Jury member Juan Luis Sánchez (eldiario.es) captured the essence of Radical Democracy: ‘I learned a lot about the different realities in different countries. This generation has found new ways of expressing strong criticism of politics and representation, and demanding change. Not in an ideological way, but by demonstrating the gap between ‘them’ and ‘us’. For more info: challenge.docnextnetwork.org.
