    1. Questions for discussion:
      • What did you find most interesting about the film?
      • What is the mood of the film? How is it created?
      • What is the message of the film? How is this developed?
      • What makes this film powerful?
      • Why do you think there is no dialogue in the film? How does the film portray its message simply with images?
      • A 2007 scientific study found that violence between ethnic groups usually occurs “in places where boundaries between groups are unclear.” Do you think that the act of putting up border ‘fences’ in such areas would help prevent conflict or enflame existing animosity?
