Green Border


This sombre black-and-white drama follows a family of Syrian refugees, an English teacher from Afghanistan and a border guard, who cross each other’s path on the Polish-Belarusian border, the eponymous green border. Veteran Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Holland’s brutal and angry film shows that when people are dragged back and forth across geopolitical lines, their humanity begins to erode. This winner of Venice’s Special Jury Prize plays witness to a grim humanitarian crisis.
