CENTERPIECE

BORDER

The centerpiece of Fantasy Filmfest 2018 is a brilliant gem with an emotional knockout power seldomly found in cinema. BORDER revolves around a customs officer with an outlandish face and one strange gift: she can detect secrets and foul play using her sense of smell alone. When she encounters a man with similar skills and looks, her quiet life is thrown into turmoil. While every film is enjoyed best with no spoilers ahead, this rings especially true in the case of Ali Abbasi‘s somber masterpiece.
