Fluid Border

A political satire about the absurdity of borders

In the middle of the Schaalsee runs the bureaucratically precisely defined "fluid border" between the FRG and the GDR. One night, a storm shifts a buoy of the borderline. While the border and measuring troops from East and West meticulously try to restore order, two surveyors throw their prejudices overboard and briefly tear down the border between them.

The film was shot on original locations at the Schaalsee.
