| So this is the state of the art?
Take this list:

Faith Akin, Barbara Albert, Sharunas Bartas, Andy Bausch, Christoffer Boe, Francesca Comencini, Stijn Coninx, Tony Gatlif, Sasa Gedeon, Christos Georgiou, Constantine Giannaris, Peter Greenaway, Miguel Hermosa, Arvo Iho, Aki Kaurismaki, Damjan Kozole, Laila Pakalnina, Kenneth Scicluna, Martin Sulik, Malgosia Szumowska, Béla Tarr, Jan Troell, Theo Van Gogh, Teresa Villaverde, Aisling Walsh

These are 25 of the brightest (but not necessarily most successful - but pretty successful) directors of the European Union's 25 member states. They each created a 5-minute "Vision of Europe". The approaches are surprisingly similar: they show either bureaucrats, "very ordinary" citizens, children, or refugees. So, this is Europe? OK, the quality of 25 short features gathered by political means may necessarily be uneven. But there are definitely some gems: my first price for beauty goes to Bela Tarr (Hungary), the one for humor to Andy Bausch (Luxembourg), and the one for biting realism to Barbara Albert (Austria).
