Conversation Over the Fence

An essay-like documentary about the deportation center in Zürich. It describes the situation of the detainees over a period of up to 18 months. The prison doesn’t allow cameras. The director’s voice gives the spectator a better understanding what these people in this forgotten place are going through.
