2015
Experimental Documentary
9’
Panorama

By definition, a border is real when it is crossed. The external borders of the European Union are controlled by a complex system consisting of visualization equipment, automated installations and communication devices. Monitoring Sea Borders shows the visual and audio material recorded in the water borders and control rooms of Algeciras in Spain. Officials discuss off-screen the movement of refugees. A sober, exceptionally forceful commentary on the current wave of migration.
