Canadian/U.S. screenings of award-winning NFB docudrama Paris 1919

Toronto, Ontario – As Remembrance Day approaches, the National Film Board of Canada announced the latest news for its award-winning film Paris 1919. Inspired by Margaret MacMillan’s best-selling book and narrated by R.H. Thomson, renowned filmmaker Paul Cowan’s docudrama skilfully merges remarkable archival footage with riveting re-enactments to depict the world-changing events of the Paris Peace Conference.

Cowan’s film offers an engrossing and innovative account of events at once global and intensely personal whose outcome still reverberates 90 years on; the Conference led to the Treaty of Versailles, the League of Nations and, some historians claim, the Second World War. Paris 1919 screened at film festivals around the world, including the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam and Hot Docs, and won the Banff World Television Award in the category of History and Biography programs.
