Borderline, produced by cafebabel and that I managed as an editor-in-chief, portrays parts and people of Poland that are often rendered invisible; their everyday lives, commitments, their initiatives and hopes, but also their worries and fears.
The project was created to shed light on the (g)local problems they are faced with, but also show just how similar the lives of young people in different European countries can be, regardless of location. Through eight multimedia features translated in 6 languages and one documentary, the cross-border teams explored Poland’s border cities and their relationship to neighbouring regions. Because at the end of the day, stories don’t end at borders.
Borderline was awarded the Spinelli Prize 2019 and finalist of the Grimme Online Award 2019.
