112’
Director
Nikolaus Geyrhalter

The Brenner Pass, the Alpine border, spring 2016: the Austrian government announces the construction of a border fence, expecting the refugee routes to shift to Italy after the Balkan route is closed. The residents fear the fence just as much as the supposedly threatening influx of foreigners to their homeland. Two years later, the fence is still rolled up in a container, as the inrush of refugees never occurred.
