A real pearl! A powerful and poetic one-take short of a real event happening on the Slovenian border. The film has won the Human Rights Award at Sarajevo Film Festival 2016 and the main award as the best short Slovenian film.
24 October, 2015. A nice day in autumn in a nice landscape. A crowd of refugees and migrants accompanied by soldiers and police officers make their way from the Schengen border between Slovenia and Croatia towards the refugee camp in Brezice. Suddenly, the landscape starts to appear less nice than it was. In 2002, the distinguished Slovenian filmmaker Damjan Kozole shot a feature film on the exact same border about two traffickers smuggling people into the EU. This time, reality replaced fiction. He decided to take a ‘no directing’ approach by using static camera, like an eerie remake of Lumiere’s The Arrival of a Train.
