    • Synopsis
    • The conflicts resulting from the meeting of the Australian Natives with white settlers more than 200 years ago are still visible in the Australia of today: While the dominating whites are convinced that the Aborigines are unwilling to become integrated into society, many Aborigines are being exposed to racism, injustice and discrimination. The film “Imaginary Border”, without any intention to idealize the Aboriginal culture, mostly puts the Aborigines experience in the centre of attention and accompanies their constant struggle to feel at home in their native country. The search of the Aborigines to find the balance between acting in a way that is accepted by society and the desire to keep their own roots is presented in this film in a lyrical way. Furthermore, “Imaginary Border” brings up a question that is not just limited to Australian society: Will a peaceful coexistence of two or more cultures, not forcing anyone into assimilation, always remain a utopia?
