Borderline | Ribos

border Lithuania - Kaliningrad Oblast
a film by Vytautas Puidokas
In production
Only birds seem to be able to migrate freely to Kaliningrad, a small, unknown part of Russia completely surrounded by the European Union.

On each side of the border between Lithuania and the Russian exclave Kaliningrad, there is an ornithologic station, researching the migration of millions of birds crossing this border region. Today both ornithologic stations make a first attempt to cross borders through a common bird research project. But will they be 2 birds of a feather?
