Kobor - a community between past and future

The fate of Kobor, like the fate of an ocean encased in a drop of water, captures the hundred-year struggle for survival of countless Eastern European communities. The effects of two world wars, of revolutions and regime changes, of dictatorships and mass emigration waves, of the aging population and the changes in its ethnic composition are all illustrated throgh individual destinies in this movie. The film attempts to go beyond the nefarious consequences of ongoing and historical events. It is looking for points of evasion from a place that many consider it has reached the point of no return; the fillmmaker is still searching for possible ways in moving forward for us all.
