Borders

A “border” is defined by “the line or frontier area separating political divisions or geographic regions; a boundary.” One people become two countries. In between a mountain, emerge two religions. A river apart, they speak two languages. And sometimes just a stone’s throw away, a war is fought between two sides. Is the border a great divider or is it just an arbitrary line? A line drawn, and lives are at once shattered or thrown into disarray, and who are the people and power controlling the division? Living at border towns, differences are magnified as the border town people search for some common ground. Some prospered on their differences, some gambled on their chances, and some make difficult choices, just so, to get on the other side. Through the eyes and investigative journalistic instincts of our series presenter, Borders tells the intriguing stories of people in a town caught between two worlds, their fates and life unravelling, as he/she traverses the imaginary line we call - border. 边城故事 一道墙,一条河,一个篱笆,分画了国家,分离了家庭,也分隔了族群和宗教。 也把你和我,分得清清楚楚。 边境是国家和国家的边界线,也是城市与城市,人与人,悲欢离合的分界点。 《边城故事》以人文和关怀的角度,透过在边城生活的代表性人物,来探索隔着边境的两地子民是如何在政治,经济和甚至在各种民生课题上,时而相互影响,时而相互矛盾;边境的划分,这道无形的墙,究竟分化了多少边城子民的家庭和生活?他们的故事可以从历史哪个点开始阐述?他们的未来又会走向什么方向? 13集的《边城故事》由新加坡知名女艺人《谢韵仪》主持,带领观众探索全世界6个边境,13个边城,例如美国与墨西哥的边境,泰缅边境和中俄边境等等。 我们希望观众收看《边城故事》能对边城的灰色地带课题有所启发,同时也能感受到,两地的边城子民其实可以在求同存异的基础上,和平共处。
