“Embassy” questions the role of diplomatic relations and territorial representation. In the spectrum of the crisis of the hostage taking of Americans in Iran between 1979 and 1981, the film tries, in particular, to respond to Switzerland’s role as a mediator in resolving this international conflict. The film shows how important the individual person is in the midst of the great diplomatic machinery.
