Evaporating Borders

Screening
Theater 7:30–7:30pm
  • Regular $11

An essay in five parts, Evaporating Borders offers a series of vignettes, poetically guided by filmmaker Iva Radivojevic's curious eye and personal reflections. Through the people she encounters along the way, the film dissects the experience of asylum seekers in Cyprus : A PLO activist and exile from Iraq is denied asylum within 15 minutes; neo-­-nazi fundamentalists roam the streets in an attack on Muslim migrants; activists and academics organize an anti-fascist rally and clash with the neo-­-nazis; 195 migrants drown in the Mediterranean.

Originally from Yugoslavia and an immigrant to Cyprus, Iva Radivojevic investigates the effects of large-­-scale immigration on the sense of national identity in one of the easiest ports of entry into Fortress Europe. Poetically photographed and rendered, the film passionately weaves the themes of migration, tolerance, identity and belonging.
