Czech and Slovak Docs at Floating Cinema: Across the Border

Across the Border is a polyglot portrait of ideas about borders at the beginning of the 21st century. In an episodic journey five directors from Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia, present their view and vision of nation, identity and Europe: By placing their personal cinematographic imprint on multifaceted portraits of their home countries, they open up a broad space for encounters with the strangers next door. This film has been made at a unique point in history, that of a political re-ordering of Europe. As a result Across the Border is a journey through landscapes and mentalities, and an area which is vanishing and at the same time undergoing a rebirth - a serious, absurd, magical, funny and poetic crash course on new old neighbours.
