February 27, 2014 - The Indie Film Clinic proudly congratulates clients Iva Radivojevic, Evaporating Borders, and Anja Marquardt, She’s Lost Control, on the selection of their films for the 2014 SXSW Film Festival.
Evaporating Borders, Radivojevic’s debut feature, is a documentary essay in five parts. The film investigates the effects of large-scale immigration on the sense of national identity in Cyprus, one of the easiest ports of entry into the European Union, through a series of vignettes and interviews with asylum seekers, activists, migrants, and nationalists. Described by The Hollywood Reporter as a “valiant call for a new way of thinking about the impact of immigration on abstract notions of nationhood,” Evaporating Borders premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in January and will have its North American premiere at SXSW on March 11.
She’s Lost Control, written, produced and directed by Anja Marquardt, explores the ever-blurring line between professional and personal intimacy in the modern world. Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “austerely elegant,” with “a sharp eye for expressive compositions and a persuasive feel for the sheer alienating physical density of New York City life,” She’s Lost Control premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 9, where it won the CICAE Art Cinema Award, and will have its North American premiere at SXSW on March 7 before returning to New York on March 29 and 30 for the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Museum of Modern Art’s New Directors/New Films festival.
