GRENZLAND - Terra di Confine
Ronny Trocker 2012, 56 Min, Italy, German/ Italian/ Ladin with German subtitles
“I grew up as part of the German-speaking minority in the north of Italy. Being part of a minority means to foremost be different from others. To be able to distinguish oneself seemed a matter of surviving. From this perspective, our country’s history has been told to us over and over again. An almost obsessive look at our own past that left little space for other perspectives.”
The film takes a trip through South-Tyrol and presents the filmmaker’s personal view of the country in search of untold stories, while he does not serve the claim of producing a complete perspective.
