The Agreement / Forhandleren

Karen Stokkendal Poulsen (DK, 2014)

Forhandleren (Karen Stokkendal Poulsen, DK, 2014)

World history is in the making when EU chief negotiator Robert Cooper has to settle an agreement on stable co-existence between Kosovo and Serbia. New Danish documentary by Karen Stokkendal Poulsen brings its audience right into the core of these intense negotiations. Stakes are high but in spite of the seriousness of the negotiations, they turn out to be surprisingly funny and carried out with style and charm by the three characters at the table. It's the last territorial conflict of Europe and crucial for the EU to prove its ability to make peace in its own backyard.
