Border Fence

  • Crowley Theater 98 South Austin Street Marfa, TX, 79843 United States (map)

By Nikolaus Geyrhalter / Austria, 2018 - 112 min

In concentric circles starting from the driveable border of the Brenner, a mountain pass through the Alps, which forms the border between Italy and Austria, this film measures the surroundings that were the scene of a shift in inner-European policy. Geyrhalter describes the space using the precise long takes he became known for on films like Homo Sapiens. In extended talks with police officers, locals, hikers, farmers, innkeepers, and toll collectors, a full diversity of voices express their individual political attitudes on a topic that affects Europe.
