00:01:07 SOUNDBITE (English): Paul DUJARDIN, director of the BOZAR: We are very honoured with this public debate and the distribution of ideas, this idea (LUX Prize) was created by the European Parliament, since a certain number of years and the goal is to bring more by the citizens. 00:00:17
00:01:24 Opening speech (French): Isabelle DURANT (Greens/EFA, BE), EP Vice-President: "It is essential to bring the Lux Prize out from the European Parliament, to let people from Brussels, from Belgium, from all different origins participate, those people who are loving cinema. This is very important, because the European Union get's often unfairly bad press, even though the Union does not only make legislative directives or is in charge to handle the crisis, this Union and this is the most important aspect in my view, can create common European values at a EU-wide range and to share those one and the cinema is of course the best tool to share emotions between the European citizens." 00:00:38
00:02:02 Opening speech (French): Doris PACK (EPP, DE), Chair of the EP Committee on Culture and Education: "During all those years we see the 'American dream', we didn't tell enough European stories, but we must tell our stories, we must make our different cultures visible and this you can better achieve with the help of films than otherwise." 00:00:23
00:02:25 Opening speech (French): Doris PACK (EPP, DE), Chair of the EP Committee on Culture and Education: "Many thanks for coming to our screening and thanks to BOZAR for opening their doors." 00:00:09

00:02:54 SOUNDBITE (French): Isabelle DURANT (Greens/EFA, BE), EP Vice-President:"The theme of migration and of the life of minorities is a theme that comes back repeatedly in the three films, if we see this young Chinese woman in its relation towards Italy and towards this fisherman, if we see this heavy but realistic film about the Roma, where we get an inside look into their daily life of discrimination. That underlines the situation in the big cities and what kind of difficulties Roma people face. And there is this film much more poetic, a Portuguese production, which is retracing the very intimate path of colonial and modern lives. I think each time is reflects the relation between a person or group of citizens, their identity with their country of residence, or their homeland and that reflects part of our European life." 00:00:43

00:03:40 SOUNDBITE (German): Doris PACK (EPP, DE), Chair of the EP Committee on Culture and Education : (about the festival opening) - "There is a very detailed and emotional observation of one Roma family, a family who is run by a woman who is in charge of everything, who is capable of doing it all by herself. She is taken care of the financial situation, the education." 00:00:20
00:04:00 SOUNDBITE (German): Doris PACK (EPP, DE), Chair of the EP Committee on Culture and Education: "A very hart touching story that illustrates the life of some Roma families, I think that is a film that can open our eyes, it was filmed in the area where a series of attacks had happened and where this family also lives." 00:00:19
00:04:19 SOUNDBITE (German): Doris PACK (EPP, DE), Chair of the EP Committee on Culture and Education : "I'm sure that we can reach out for many people, who we would not reach otherwise, also for our idea of united Europe. I think therefore we did right that we as European Parliament did not used the budget for this event out of the European budget, but out of its own budget which is designated for Communication." 00:00:23
