Yugoslav history and Balkan borders are famously complicated. This is why Croatian director Tiha K. Gudac had to put current facts as plainly as possible at the beginning of her second feature-length documentary The Wire, which world-premiered at Dok.fest München.
The film is a part of Borderline Collection, a series of six documentaries about life around borders in Europe. It deals with a fence that the Slovenian government installed on the river Kupa, marking a part of its border with Croatia, in order to stop refugees from entering Europe proper. Both countries are EU members, but Croatia is not in the Schengen Area. Currently, 187km of the 667km-long border is protected with fence, much of it razor-wire.
