Written, Produced and Directed by Annalisa Piras and executive produced by Claudia Bucher (Arte G.E.I.E) and Axel Arno (SVT), "Europe At Sea" had exclusive access to Federica Mogherini, the head of EU Foreign and Security Policy for a year and a half while she put together the complex jigsaw puzzle of the new EU Global Strategy, in a year that saw the Brexit vote and Trump's election.
In Springshot's trademark style, "Europe At Sea" is bound to take viewers out of their comfort zone, with beautiful cinematography and animations combined with rigorous journalism and powerfully presented hard facts. Springshot’s latest documentary, Europe at Sea examines whether Europe is capable - and willing - to combat the myriad security and humanitarian challenges within and beyond its borders. The film obtained unprecedented access to HRVP Federica Mogherini, the chief of EU Foreign and Security Policy at a pivotal moment of European history. Europe at Sea contains never-before-seen footage of the migrant crisis and offers a unique insight into the workings of the first joint EU naval fleet in the Southern Mediterranean Sea, Operation Sophia, on which Springshot’s crew were embedded.
Co-produced by Franco-German ARTE, Swedish SVT, and British Springshot Productions "Europe At Sea" is a unique European co-production that provides a uniquely European perspective on the most pressing security issues facing European citizens today. London-based, global documentary distributor Journeyman Pictures is distributing the film worldwide.
The film has also been pre-sold to Italy's Sky Cinema, Rai Cinema, YLE Finland and TVE Spain.
