A Multilayered Narrative About Migration, Belonging and Displacement
30 March 2014 | by martynastarostaSee all my reviews

"Evaporating Borders" is a striking film essay about the experience of asylum seekers in Cyprus. Watching this essay unfold felt like embarking on a challenging journey. The film combines poetic yet concise observations of current events with the filmmaker's thoughts about identity, belonging and displacement in the context of a globalized economy. I really appreciated that Radivojevic decided to include people with a wide range of political opinions in her film. She was able to do justice to a controversial subject and at the same time I always felt that she was treating the stories of the refugees with empathy and respect. Her thoughtful approach made me think of a kaleidoscope where the viewer can never grasp the full picture because it's constantly in flux. This approach might be challenging for an audience that is used to clear-cut advocacy films with simple recipes on how to fix complex problems. But I believe that we also need subtle narratives, which challenge us both intellectually and emotionally. I am sure that we can use "Evaporating Borders" as an important tool to spark conversations about the human rights of migrants in our communities.
