Directed by Valeska Grisebach

Presented by the University of Cincinnati Center for Film and Media Studies

A group of German construction workers ventures to the periphery of Europe to build a hydropower station in a remote Bulgarian nature preserve. Amid this breath-taking landscape, they find themselves confronted with the challenges of physical work, the limits of language, and the foreignness of Bulgaria itself. Reimaging the Western genre in a contemporary European borderland, Valeska Grisebach explores romanticized conceptions of masculinity and the quest for freedom on imagined and real “frontier” of civilization.  Introduced by Tanja Nusser (German Studies and Film & Media Studies, UC)
