Microcosmos: People of the Grass

Claude Nuridsany, Marie Pérennou / 80 min / 1996 / France, Italy, Switzerland

One day, one night and then dawn. In the space of a lawn, one centimetre high, perspective changes profoundly. With the eyes of insects, spiders and snails, in a universe that changes every hour, we observe the life that swarms and is reborn, hidden from human eyes.

The Border Fence

Nikolaus Geyrhalter / 112 min / 2018 / Austria

Of the wall that it was announced would be built at the Brenner border in 2016, today there remains only a fence rolled up in a container, while the feared “invasion” of migrants never took place. From conversations with local people, a point of view very different from the massive propaganda on the subject of emigration emerges.
