"The Boundaries of Freedom“

05 09 2021 - 8 pm

Walls are everywhere: in people's minds as well as on rivers, along the border to Mexico and in the very definition of the "Fortress of Europe". But also in Germany's past as a divided country, borders and their fortifications are a strategy against communication and understanding. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the construction of the Berlin Wall, we will explore the barriers, test the impenetrability of concrete and barbed wire and examine their meaningfulness. A rich and varied programme featuring festival winners and favourites gleaned from interfilm's distribution.

The program will be accompanied by Ricardo Brunn, and contemporary witnesses and filmmakers will be invited for discussion.

Registration: Free tickets are available at Mobilekino Berlin

The program:

Die Weite suchen / Wider Horizons

Falk Schuster
Germany 2015 - 29:25 min

Its the summer of 1987 and a young family from the Leipzig district in East Germany are going on holiday, driving with their Trabant and trailer to a small holiday home on the Baltic Sea near the border to West Germany. This part autobiography, animated documentry follows the family as they begin their journey and gives us an insight into the unusual reality and day to day normalities of holidaying in East Germany so close to the border. Personal memories and factual evidence come together to create an illustratated travel journal.



Fließende Grenze / Fluid Border

Joana Vogdt
Germany 2020 - 17:13 min
1980, the German-German borderlands: Right through the middle of a lake runs a precisely defined "fluid border" between East- and West Germany. One night a storm shifts one of the buoys which form the borderline. While the border guards from East and West are trying to restore the border, two land surveyors throw their prejudices overboard and tear down their boundaries.


Der übers Meer kam / The One Who Crossed the Sea

Jonas Riemer
Germany 2020 - 10:57 min
Where does the fear of foreign cultures and the desire for isolation really come from? The animated documentary THE ONE WHO CROSSED THE SEA tells the story of a GDR refugee who joins the new right. In a folding boat, he fled to Western Germany via Denmark, where the story tips into the dark. His newly acquired freedom turns into disorientation. Only in a growing nationalist movement does the main character find a new home.




Paul Scholten
Germany 2018 - 11:31 min
Life in Neuperlach, a Munich suburb, is quaint. It is an safe neighborhood, where people know and greet each other. Everybody has their own backyard; single car garages are lining the narrow footpaths and everything is groomed. But for some time now that peacefulness is troubled, because refugees are supposed to move in next door. As some of the residents are afraid of the noise to be expected, they are putting up a noise protection wall. „Biotope“ shows the life of the locals and gets to the bottom of the reason for building that wall.



Halmaspiel / Chinese Checkers

Betina Kuntzsch
Germany 2018 - 14:33 min
“My mother was always a great Halma player.” It’s a 20th century biography: growing up in the Nazi era, teenage years in post-war Germany, the the building of the Wall, and life in the GDR as well as in a united Germany. It’s a story of escaping, desperation and blending in.



Minden Rendben / Everything Alright

Borbála Nagy
Germany 2017 - 13:00 min
Alpár has his first day of work at the border between Hungary and Serbia. Stationed there to save his country from refugees, he is confronted with the reality of being a border guard and is forced to adapt to the merciless customs.
