Festival Tip

The Border Fence

Try to imagine what it would be like if the borders between the various European countries existed again, or even if the countries began building fences. Some people from Austria had to face the possibility that this vision may become reality. During the refugee crisis of 2016, the country’s politicians came up with a controversial proposal to erect a 370-meter barbed-wire fence across the Brenner Pass that would separate Austria from Italy. What is stronger: the fear of refugees that politicians often evoke through their proclamations, or the fear of limiting our own freedoms?
