Die Mitte

The Center

 
In its search for the geographical center of Europe this film follows a trail of errors, presumptions and bizarre self-assertions. It casts a particular light on eccentrics and visionaries, local patriots and continental utopians. Mucha shows how the growing struggle for survival on the part of those living both outside Europe’s old borders and inside the new ones is met with an even greater composure and sense of humour.
