The Border Between Us

I've been reading a lot about and of Brecht in the last year, and wanting to create something that fits in with his various ideas about the distancing effect to push political ideas, I've been working on a 10 minute script about a group of refugees at a border crossing who have various statuses as migrant and refugees and their experience of being allowed or denied access to safety. Each actor switches roles in each 'scene' to show the artifice of not only the film, but also borders and nation state constructions of citizen and immigration. I'm hoping to shoot this in April or May with a group of real refugees playing the roles and bringing some of their experience to the piece.
