Performance Notes

× A group of German workers sets off to a construction site in the mountainous border region between Bulgaria and Greece. This foreign land and its breath-taking landscape awaken the men’s sense of adventure, but they are also confronted with their own prejudice and mistrust due to the language barrier and cultural differences. The stage is quickly set for a showdown when men begin to compete for recognition and favour from the local villagers. This slow burn naturalistic drama contrasts two very different European cultures and ways of life in an existential study of working class and rural masculinity through the lens of a woman director. Produced by the team behind the wonderful 2016 film, ‘Toni Erdmann.’ Directed by Valeska Grisebach, 2017, Germany, Bulgaria, Austria, 119 minutes

In German and Bulgarian with English subtitles.

“A nuanced look at masculinity and cultural imperialism.” - Paul Ennis, NOW Toronto
