GOOD HOSTS / BOUNDARIES OF ACCEPTANCE
SAT / 8. 7. / 14 H / CINEMA TOWER
We want to show you how leaving one’s boundaries behind can create new and different borders that are often equally difficult to overcome and that crushing of boundaries of security can lead individuals to situations where they need a new look at the world and create new and unexpected problems. If we want to accept new circumstances and different life stories, we must often be ready to open our own boundaries and leave our own comfort zone. Some must cross their boundaries, those inside and outside. Can you cross yours?
