A border in Europe. A painting by Paul Klee. A poem by Walter Benjamin. A film about borders, escape and migration. About yesterday and today, and how difficult it is to recognize one behind the other.
There has never been a document of culture, which is not simultaneously one of barbarism.

 

The short film by Eric Esser addresses the topic of inner and outer borders of Europe using the example of the French border town of Port Bou. This year it ran internationally at several festivals and received numerous awards. More: makeshiftmovies.info
