THE BORDER, dir. Jaro Vojtek, SK 2009,
During the night of August 30, 1946, the village of Slemence on the eastern European border, was divided by the Red Army into two parts. One part, Veľké Slemence, remained in Slovakia (former Czechoslovakia); the other part was renamed Malé Slemence and became a part of Ukraine (in the former Soviet Union). The absurdly demarked border, similar to the famed Berlin Wall, divides estates, the cemetery, and closest families up to this day. This documentary pictures the bitter experience of people from Slemence, who dream of the opening of the most closely-watched border of the European Union.
