„The 4th Country“ shows a trip into an area of borders, where the three countries of Switzerland, France and Germany come together. Equipped with rucksack and camera we crossed the area within spitting distance of our home in Basel. We lived in hotels like we were tourists on a voyage to a far away country. The trip evolved like a thriller without action in a no mans land between abandoned borders, brush, community gardens, industry, family home colonies and dubious hotel rooms.
