Description: „The Frontier“ or „La Frontera“ is the undulating landscape of the Sonora Desert in Arizona, which once was a symbol of freedom on the horizon of the American West – and also a region plagued by recurrent territorial struggles. Currently, a high steel fence stretches over few miles strictly separating the USA and Mexico into two territories. Each year, the remains of hundreds of migrants are retrieved from the area. The tense case in Arizona’s borderland has split the locals into two groups: one demanding a more technically advanced border control system, the another requesting more humanitarian help. Accompanying different locals, NGO workers and self-proclaimed border guards from the region, filmmaker Gudrun Gruber raises the question of whether the recent border control technology will finally bring peace to the area, or rather merely increase the number of deaths.

Description: This is the final entry in the Pete Smith Specialty series.

Description: Is it possible to live a life fully independent of social and economic constraints, wholly at one with nature? In the picturesque mountains of Val Lavizzara in Ticino, few individuals have come together to form a cooperative society and live such a life. There is a plethora of chores to be done on the farm: animals to feed, fields to plough and tree trunks to be chopped. As the year progresses, more and more problems surface dividing the younger and older residents: how much technology is acceptable? How much compromise is important and reasonable? Is the amount of work done in balance with the effects gained? Along with a poetic gaze, director Hans Haldimann also shows the sometimes extraordinarily complicated side to a ‘simple’ self-sufficient life. This may be far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but there are just as many issues to be faced.

Description: According to the 2010 census, San José de las Salinas, on the north of the Córdoba province, had 662 inhabitants. That sum no longer included Ramón Cáceres, who had died at the hands of his wife and brother-in-law five years before: the only crime in that town’s history.

The effects range from the romantic (Hudson River School painter Frederic Church's Olana, framing views of the Catskills to echo his paintings), to the futuristic (Urbanist Paolo Soleri's silt-casted structure Cosanti growing out of experiments in bell making in the Arizona desert).
