Synopsis

The Embassy has an air of authentic documentary, about twenty-minute amateur picture recorded with a Super-8 camera at the embassy where several refugees seek shelter. They were expelled from an unknown country after an alleged coup d'état. The film contains the arrival of the refuge-seekers, their long debates, housework, news from the world outside, arguments and finally their departure. Reflecting the tension and growing isolation of its protagonists, the picture uses a wide range of technical means which appeared in a family movie in the early 1970's.
