No more borders.
Mohand and Peter will travel everywhere and anywhere in the blink of an eye.
A backflip in time, a quick hop back home, with humour and visual poetry they’ll take you on a road trip through Sudan jumping from one character to another, including Omar Al Bashir, Mohand’s 450 cousins, and a lazy camel.
“You Know Peter, when I close my eyes I can see my country. I can see my village. I can see my people…”
Mohand and Peter bounce on one of the toughest international news stories of the decade and as two brave clowns, they fight horror with laughter to build a magnificent pedestal for Mohand’s country.
“Every day for the past 5 years since we created Borderline, I witnessed how much my cast miss their homes. I saw pictures of beautiful lakes, mountains, and ancient buildings; Videos of family gatherings, birthdays, and silly cats. I FaceTimed brothers, sisters, but also nieces and nephews. Those precious little ones that we are lucky to spoil at weekends but that the people I work with have never held in their arms because they are not allowed to go back. Not for a wedding, not for a funeral, never. Their country is not just a war zone or a Talibans’ nest, it’s their homes. With Mohand & Peter, we aim to celebrate them.” Sophie Bertrand Besse (director)
