This feature documentary reflects mainly on the expansion of the European project into
neighbouring countries that do not have ‘common’ European values. The first sentence of the
preamble of the European Charter of Fundemental Rights of the European Union states: The
peoples of Europe, in creating an ever closer union among them, are resolved to share a peaceful
future based on common values. The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union
outlines for the purpose of EU law, firm political, social, and economic rights for European
Union (EU) citizens and residents. The Charter was drafted by the European Convention
proclaimed on 7 December 2000 by the European Parliament. My film would like to explore
these common European values and their socia-political ramifications on the possible inclusion
and exclusion of peoples and countries based on their not so common ethnic, religious and social
values. Does and/or has this preamble to the constitution cause problems for Turkey or Albania
for example to join the Union? Do Slavic Orthodox countries like Serbia have equal access?
What about newly forming countries that wish to separate from their constitutional obligations
like Scotland or Catalunia?
