The Eremites (Die Einsiedler)

Sat 18 February 2017

Albert is the only child of introverted farmers Marianne and Rudl, who take residence in a dilapidated estate high in the Alps. Albert, after years of isolation, has issues with societal assimilation, often choosing to take refuge in the family barn rather than socialising with co-workers. His rejection of social norms is challenged following a budding romance with the canteen cook and a family bereavement, begging the question; are social behaviours intrinsic, or developed gradually? A stunning and meditative study on human behaviour with a haunting performance from Andreas Lust.

Also screening on Wed 22 Feb, 3.30pm
