Paris 1919


The last shots had been fired in the First World War — but peace had yet to be made. Inspired by Margaret MacMillan’s acclaimed work of popular history, Paris 1919 takes us inside the most ambitious peace talks in history, revisiting the event with a vivid sense of narrative. Evoking a pivotal moment when peace seemed possible, director Paul Cowan reflects upon the hard-learned lessons of history.

Paul Cowan's feature-length documentary Paris 1919 combines archival footage and dramatic re-enactments to take viewers inside the peace talks that followed World War I.
