Running time: 43’34’’

A Polish female volleyball team and a coach that doesn't speak Polish. A hospital in Brandenburg, where Polish doctors encounter Polish patients. An artist who “terminates” the border and creates a new, common space. “GRENZE/GRANICA” is a visual journey along the Polish-German border. It begins in Szczecin and leads as far as Görlitz and Zgorzelec. Throughout its 45 minutes, the documentary shows seven examples of Polish-German life – from various angles, but always from a German and Polish point of view. The border is open – how does this influence the people who live here? Free of prejudice, the film documents life in a region that wants to be something more than just the outskirts of Poland or Germany – it is, after all, the centre of Europe.
