Crossing Borders – narrated by Robert Menasse

Crossing Borders – narrated by Robert Menasse

Together with the dedicated Austrian writer Robert Menasse we seek the inner and outer borders of his country in the heart of Europe. The film accompanies the writer on his quest for a European culture into a new, never known boundlessness, as well as for new borders. CROSSING BORDERS illustrates the limitations in minds and in landscapes as well as in culture and politics.
