What are the borders that define, divide and restrict communities around the world, and how do we overcome them? Objectifs is proud to premiere 5 documentary features that confront the impact of geographical, social, and psychological borders on critical issues affecting all of us today, and looks at possibilities for collaboration and change.

From the European refugee crisis to the American struggle for civil rights, these international documentaries speak of the different borders that people across the world have sought to overcome in recent years. Highlights include the Singapore premiere of the acclaimed I Am Not Your Negro and the first documentary on Brexit, Brexitannia. The feature film screenings will be preceded by short films from What Works, an initiative by the Magnum Foundation that addresses bridge-building amongst groups that might otherwise be in conflict.
