he film Volver la Vista - The Gaze Back artificially puts the viewer in the role of a foreigner. It portraits twentysix Mexicans who live in Austria and Austrians spending their lives in Mexico. Employing clichés, desires, dreams and personal experiences, they depict their ideas of home while at the same time attempting to localize their personal identities. They are accompanied by two cameramen who themselves cross borders. Their gazes follow the narrators and their stories to the other country.
