Video: Barrier

Seeking out boundaries in Germany.

Vermächtnisstudie: Schranke

Director: Denis Pavlovic
Executive producer: Isabella Braun
Film Academy Baden-Württemberg

We encounter barriers and boundaries every day and everywhere, even if we don’t realize it at first glance. The film heads out to search for socially accepted and almost imperceptible boundaries in Germany.

A view to the Legacy study: Germans wish for more freedom in some areas, but are also convinced that boundaries are necessary to feel comfortable and safe in a society. We are used to restrictions and barely perceive them any longer. “Schranke” highlights the kind of more or less absurd boundaries we encounter on a daily basis.

You can decide who will receive the audience award in the film contest about the Legacy Study. Voting is possible from November 15 to November 22 (12 pm CET) – simply give a “Like” to your favourite short film. Meanwhile, a jury will select three works as well.
