Across Borders - Music from the Balkans
Jenseits der Grenzen - Musik vom Balkan
Turbo folk and Bach, soft pop and smoochies, Bukovina dub and brass bands - the music of the Balkans is as varied as its central figures. Ecstasy and despair are close bedfellows here - often there is
nothing between them. This documentary illuminates the scene in Vienna and Belgrade. In the process, political, ethnic and religious identity conflicts are uncovered, which sometimes date back to the war in the former Yugoslavia.
