NY Emmy® Nomination Announcement

Special Screening: "Paris 1919"

Special Screening
Documentary Winner - 2009 Banff Television Festival
Hosted by Georges Leclere - director, Banff Television Awards
 
"Paris 1919" - winner in the Historical Documentary category, runner-up for the special Jury Grand Prize at the Banff Television Festival in June 2009
 
For six months in 1919, Paris was the capital of the world. The last shots had just been fired in the most devastating war of all time -- and the old global order lay in tatters.
 
Delegations from over 30 nations urgently descended upon Paris for the most ambitious peace talks in history. At the helm were the Big Four: U.S. President Woodrow Wilson along with the leaders of France, the U.K. and Italy.
 
Their goal was to draft a peace treaty "for all time," creating instead an embittered Germany already dreaming of retaliation -- and contentious new entities like Iraq and Yugoslavia.
 
In a compelling story that blends re-enactments with archival images, director/writer/photographer Paul Cowan captures the dramatic cut-and-thrust of diplomacy, while evoking the extraordinary atmosphere of a metropolis returning to life.
 
Inspired by the book "Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed The World" written by Canadian historian Margaret MacMillan, "Paris 1919" the film was produced by the National Film Board of Canada in co-production with 13 Production in association with Galafilm, Arte France, TVO, RTBF Belgium TV, Simple Production, GA&A Productions-Italy, SBS-TV Australia, TSR Switzerland and YLE Teema Finland.
