"An Uncertain Border" from 26 November on DVD and VOD

"An Uncertain Border" is available on DVD and as VOD in the W-film Shop and in regular stores from 26 November. The film was released on 25 May during the lockdown in the W-film online cinema with solidarity revenue sharing for the closed cinemas. Director Isabella Sandri tells the gripping story of a child abduction as a genre mix between psychological thriller and outsider ballad, whose motifs are reminiscent of Kubrick's "Lolita" and Fellini's "La Strada"! Highly topical, because child abuse in cyberspace and grooming are unfortunately still a sad reality! Great cast with Cannes award winner Cosmina Stratan ("Beyond the Hills"), young actress Anna Malfatti in her first cinema role and Moisé Curia.
