Christoffer Guldbrandsen, Denmark, 2011

59 min.DK/Documentary

The incisive and unsettling story about the man who became the first President of Europe ... against his own will. Told in a charged and unflinching manner by current and former heads of state, »The President« shows how Europe got its first president and offers stunning insight into why the EU, time and again, fails whenever big decisions have to be made.
