Evaporating Borders

Evaporating Borders

An essay in five parts, EVAPORATING BORDERS offers a series of vignettes, poetically guided by the filmmaker’s curious eye and personal reflections. Through the people she encounters along the way, the film dissects the experience of asylum seekers in Cyprus: APLO 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 antifascist rally and clash with the neo-Nazis; 195 migrants drown in the Mediterranean.

Iva Radivojevic was born in 1980 in Belgrade, Serbia. Before emigrating to the U.S., she lived in Serbia and Cyprus. Her work explores the theme of identity and migration. Radivojevic’s films have been awarded at notable international film festivals. EVAPORATING BORDERS is her first feature length documentary. // Films (selection): MATTHEW 24:14 (2011, short doc), NOBODY CAN PREDICT THE MOMENT OF REVOLUTION (2011, short doc), WE THE PEOPLE HAVE FOUND OUR VOICE (2011, short doc), BEN: IN THE MIND'S EYE (2012, short doc), MIXBA (2012, short doc), EVAPORATING BORDERS (2014, doc)
