RE:
ARTE REGARDS
“RE:” is a series of weekday reportage telling stories that touch the soul of Europe. The format fills
a gap between daily news and documentary analysis. The reports always centre on people, but
without being portraits. The narration has protagonists and antagonists, opening up an arena of
social or political friction.
Format:
Each report is about 28 minutes long and uses powerful imagery to tell personal stories that
embody a theme. The piece is constructed around its own self-contained narrative. By delving
deeply into the protagonist’s world, it draws the audience into the story. “RE:” offers participants
plenty of space to express their views.
By exploring a concrete example without sensationalism, the aim is to tackle significant themes in
Europe in detail and to enhance understanding of problems and their solutions. The cross-border
perspective is key: these reports must be relevant and intelligible outside Germany.
Despite the thematic diversity and the individual styles which are expressed in this format, the
visual concept reflects a strong brand. This is the foundation for slot recognition and audience
loyalty.
Contents:
Problems, challenges, conflicts, events and trends of particular relevance to Europe presented in
a lively form and putting a face on the news, headlines and facts. The themes reflect all walks of
life, from politics via industry to culture.
Unlike news reports, these films do not seek to strike a balance. They consciously pick out one
aspect of a complex theme and offer space for unambiguous opinions and beliefs. Thanks to new,
subjective and often unexpected perspectives, these programmes can produce surprises and
sometimes swim against the tide.
