In the late sixties film director Louis van Gasteren (1992) made a series of three films on the European Community. During that time he met Sicco Mansholt (1908-1995), agricultural commissioner of the EEC. They became close friends. Because of their friendship Van Gasteren got a special insight into the world of this prominent politician. Van Gasteren often accompanied Mansholt on his trips through Europe. Thus, he was able to document from up-close the conflicts and dilemma’s that Mansholt had to face as politician and statesman.
