Part of a series of shorts designed to give various perspectives on Europe, The European Shower Bath, by Peter Greenway, stands as an interesting commentary on the development of the European Union, as well as society’s response to said unionization. Various people representing their individual countries shower together as all of their individual colors mix and go down one drain. Others join the shower and inevitably several people/ countries are left out. Shortly all the water runs out suggesting the members of the European Union are taking up all of the recourses and leaving none for any of the other countries or newer members to the union. It is an interesting concept that places the countries people at their most personal and vulnerable. Being able to view these countries as their individual people really brings home the message that the citizens are the only ones that are getting hurt by the action of the European Union.
