«Faleminderit» de Nicolas Neuhold

SINOPSIS

En 1921, el cartógrafo luxemburgués CHARLES SCHAEFFER es enviado a Albania como parte de una comisión fronteriza para recopilar información sobre la topografía y la gente de la región. El país se ha independizado recientemente, pero aún no tiene fronteras claramente definidas. Al inspeccionar la tierra, se encuentra con un niño que se une brevemente a él en su caminata. Charles le muestra cómo hace su trabajo y se hace amigo de él.

De vuelta en París, Charles informa a la Conferencia de Embajadores. Al principio, se siente abrumado por la impresionante arquitectura y la intimidante grandeza del evento. Sin embargo, pronto se entera de que el partido de los diplomáticos egoístas tiene poco interés en el futuro de las personas que acaba de conocer. Sin ningún representante de Albania presente, Charles siente la necesidad de hablar por el joven país. A pesar de romper el protocolo al hacerlo, Charles comparte una observación con los diplomáticos en disputa que les permite encontrar una solución pacífica a la cuestión de dónde trazar las fronteras que se necesitan con urgencia.

SINOPSIS EN INGLÉS

In 1921, Luxembourgish cartographer CHARLES SCHAEFFER is sent to Albania as part of a border commission to gather information on the topography and the people of the region. The country has recently become independent, but it does not yet have clearly defined borders. Surveying the land, he meets a young boy who briefly joins him on his walk. Charles shows him how he does his work and becomes friendly with him.

Back in Paris, Charles gets to report to the Conference of Ambassadors. At first, he is overwhelmed by the impressive architecture and the intimidating grandeur of the event. However, he soon learns that the party of self-serving diplomats has little interest in the future of the people he has just met. With no representative of Albania even present, Charles feels the need to speak up for the young country. Despite breaking protocol in doing so, Charles shares an observation with the quarrelling diplomats that allows them to find a peaceful solution to the question of where to draw the urgently needed borders.
