11 November 1918. The Great War is finally over. A new era is about to start. Amidst the grief, disappointment and old fears, new dreams and hopes are now emerging but so too are new hatreds:
“Clash of Futures” explores the dramatic era of the 1920s and ’30s. The eight-part series follows the fates of extraordinary men, women and children from France, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Austria, Sweden, Poland and the Soviet Union using their own diary entries, letters and memoirs. These are people drawn into the war by their convictions, who with their loves and decisions bring the history of Europe with all its contradictions to life.
The team around showrunner Jan Peter (“14 – Diaries of the Great War”) is strengthened by the addition of Frédéric Goupil, co-director of the hugely successful French series “The Returned”. Together with Jan Peter, he developed and wrote the scripts, and realises them as co-director. Camilla Ahlgren is also joining the team as a co-author. She is known for, among other things, her work on the Swedish/Danish/German series “The Bridge”.
