Austin Film Society and Dot Dot Dot Dot Connect present a special advance screening of Green Border, followed by a virtual Q&A with the director, Agnieszka Holland.

The 2023 film, winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 80th Venice Film Festival delivers a statement about ordinary people's moral choices when confronted with international crises and political manipulations.

In the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so-called "green border" between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are caught in a geopolitical crisis triggered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko. In an attempt to provoke Europe, refugees are lured to the border by propaganda promising easy passage to the EU. Pawns in this hidden war, the lives of Julia, a newly minted activist who has given up her comfortable life, Jan, a young border guard, and a Syrian refugee family intertwine.
