Hinterwelten

A Film by Lion Bischof, Jonas Heldt and Felicitas Sonvilla

Synopsis

From the scenic area of eastern Bavaria to the Czech border six young people are on their journey. In this area, where all boundaries are supposed to be open, they are surrounded by a landscape in decay. Here they reach their own limits – who will leave them behind, who will arrange with them, who will find a way out or just continue? HINTERLAND is a documentary film with fictional moments on the attitude towards life of a youth in a new Europe.
