BORDERS WINNER: 489 Years – Hayoun Kwon
This film struck us because it talks about borders in a poetic and uncommon way, open to many interpretations. Combining a very actual theme with universal and timeless emotions and thoughts, this film grasps the ambiguity hidden in the very idea of “border”: a dangerous and negative place, and at the same time a place in which things change and move to different situations. The border as a meeting place, not a censoring zone. A space in which imagination gets richer thanks to diversity. For these reasons, the Jury has decided to give the Borders Award to 489 YEARS by Hayoun Kwon
