Evaporating Borders is directed by Iva Radivojevic and is set in Cyprus.

Cyprus is one of the easiest entry points into the European Union, making it a popular final destination for refugees escaping countries around the Mediterranean. The influx of asylum seekers, however, is not entirely welcomed by native Cypriots. Director Iva Radivojevic, herself a refugee to Cyprus from the former Yugoslavia, narrates and guides the audience through the streets of Cyprus to try and understand why antipathy and aggression towards these new citizens is tearing an already divided nation further apart.
