Art and creativity have often anticipated future and potential social and historical scenarios. Made in 2015, the film shows the possible effects of the European Union’s break-up, highly topical given the political tensions and the sensational exit of the UK from the EU. The film describes a growing crisis, selfishness of leaders who appear distant from citizens and repeated mistakes in the common management of economy. It suggests a possible future disaster. The Great European Disaster describes a Europe headed towards the abyss.

The filmmakers Bill Emmott and Annalisa Piras launched the Wake Up Europe! campaign to promote a transnational debate on the future of the European Union.

This event is organized by the Castello di Rivoli and the GAM Torino in collaboration with the Museo Nazionale del Cinema of Turin.
