western

A group of German construction workers sent to build a hydroelectric power plant set up camp on the outskirts of a remote Bulgarian village. Tensions within the group start to rise when former legionnaire Meinhard sets himself apart from his colleagues by making a connection with the villagers. But matters finally come to a head when the white horse that Meinhard has borrowed from townsman Adrian goes missing.

Using non-actors in all of the roles, award-winning director Grisebach subtly and intelligently explores the dynamics of all-male environments, as well as themes of national pride and cultural difference in this memorable and unique contemporary western.

Valeska Grisebach follows her 2006 award-winner Longing with this contemporary western.
