Austria 2021 – Director: Jannis Lenz – Original with English Subtitles

As a child, Ahmet wanted to be an actor. Joining the Austrian army offered more security. He boxes, is disciplined and in great shape but now he is playing Stanley in “A Streetcar Named Desire” and must learn to show feelings. A complex search for identity and at the same time a wonderfully musical play on stereotypes and role models. Ysabel Fantou

We present the German premiere of the film.
