Magical realism from Sweden, Border is based on a short story by John Ajvide Linquist, author of Let The Right One In. Tina is half sniffer dog, half woman, capable of smelling deception. She works at border control where she uses her talent to stop ne’erdowells. From there the story forks into her helping track down a child trafficking ring, and her meeting her match in the form of Vore, a man who seems to be unusual like her.
Border is about arbitrary divisions; between our identity in civilised society and our selves as animals in nature; between male and female, between magic and reality. Truth rarely has these borders, where our authentic selves and lived experiences lie.
