Films have the capacity to engage people in a profound and meaningful dialogue. For this reasons cinema has been used as a tool for cultural diplomacy. In this vein how does cinema improve our understanding of what surrounds us. In the light of the three films competing for the 2015 LUX Prize, whose topics confront us with moral issues that question our beliefs, the members o the European Parliament will discuss different perspective on immigration, on violence against women and on religious fundamentalism.
