Toward South

May 2009

Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall two photographers together with two journalists, a director and a cartoonist travelled along the Iron Curtain, the 6.300 km long border that used to split Europe in two blocks from the end of World War II to 1989.

As a result of this experience, The Iron Curtain Diaries 1989-2009 project was born. Shortlisted at the first edition of the France 24-RFI Web Documentary Award in Visa pour l’Image 2009, at Festival Des Quatres Ecrans in Paris, and at IDFA in Amsterdam.

The Iron Curtain Diaries 1989-2009 is a coproduction of prospekt photographers, BeccoGiallo, On/Off and Peacereporter.
