Clash of Futures
Clash of Futures is a 2018 docudrama series by Jan Peter and Gunnar Dedio (LOOKSfilm) shot for the project of the same name. The series follows on from 14 - Diaries of the Great War (2014) and depicts 13 personal fates in interwar Europe. It is a European co-production with international partners and supporters in the commemorative year of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War on November 11, 1918. For all the people of Europe, the year 1918 marks the beginning of a journey into the unknown. The world lies in ruins and peace turns Europe into a laboratory of new ideas, new hopes, and new social concepts. From the very beginning, the vision of a peaceful, democratic Europe finds itself in competition with two other extremely powerful utopias - communism and fascism. The TV series tells the war between these three ideologies, these dreams of a better, fairer world, through personal stories based on diary entries, letters, and memoirs. With their dreams and fears, their love, and their decisions, the protagonists of the series make the history of Europe come alive in all its contradictions. In 1939, this story culminates in the Second World War.
