Dir.: Christine Repond | In all 85 min

Sascha doesnt really know what he wants to do with his life after school. Most of his friends have begun to study or are being apprenticed, but he just smokes joints and pinches things. It's not easy with girls either and a date with an otherwise sweet girl does not turn out the way he had hoped. When he gets a job as a lumberjack and discovers a hut, where neo-Nazis have parties, things in his life start to happen. He goes with his friends, but when the immediate fascination wears off, Sascha's moral compass begins pointing due north. The Swiss 'Silver Forest' takes a closer look at youth apathy and identifies a raw realism and an understated drama that creeps under your skin.

No further screenings planned.
