Dancing on a Razor’s Edge: What happens when you close a border?
Premiere status: World premiere
Run time: 1 hour, 26 minutes, 34 seconds
Synopsis: Nearly thirty years after the fall of the Berlin wall, there are almost more fences along European borders than before. What is going on? What does Europe need protection from? And what happens when you close a border? In Hungary, where the government placed a four-meter-high fence alongside its Southern border, we went looking for answers.
What happens when you close a border? We asked this question to Hungarian citizens, mayors of border villages, activists, aid workers, refugees and scholars. Every single one of them gave a different answer, everyone of them opted for a different solution. This film shows how complicated borders can be, that thinking in ‘us and them’ does no right to the actual situation and what the consequences are when a government, that does think that way, comes to power.
