Europa
Journey to the centre of Europe

When director Stanislaw Mucha discovers that twelve different European cities claim to be the geographical centre of Europe, he sets out on a journey to find the true answer. What starts out as a quest to answer a geographical question, ends up as an anthropological study of the continent's diverse cultural and ethnical groups - many of whom are certain they know the truth about Europe's centre point. The resulting film becomes both entertaining, curious and intriguing, as we realize that the answer seems to be more a matter of faith than fact.
