The Portuguese Presidency of 2021 is starting and it will be very different from what we had hoped for. There are, nonetheless, some precious silver linings and this film is one of them. This project would not have been possible if it was not for the pandemic.
A lot of people were involved working in close cooperation, both ACIs and staff, retired colleagues and those on active duty. We put together a concept, filmed, edited and even created the music that goes with the film. We were helped by other interpreters in other units, who generously accepted to be filmed, give interviews and subtitle the film in English.
A common project brought us closer together in a difficult period and helped us forget our worries and remember how proud we are of our work and our shared history.
