About the Film:
Part of the 5th Berlin & Beyond Film Festival Honolulu.
Directed by Alain Gsponer. 2017. Germany. 110 min. German with English subtitles. Hawaiʻi Premiere.
Swiss filmmaker Alain Gsponer (Heidi, Rose) helms this new cinematic vision based on Austro-Hungarian-born writer Ödön von Horváth’s enduringly popular 1938 dark fable about guilt, fate, and the individual conscience, Jugend ohne Gott (also released as The Age of the Fish).
In a dystopian, performance-oriented society, adolescents struggle for good grades while their dreams are shattered by an indifferent system. In a not-too-distant future, in which integration serves to protect the elite and isolate the weak, the cities are hellholes and the countryside holds the fairytale promise of a better life, a young school girl is found in the woods during the annual graduates' assessment camp. Known for his upstanding morals, a teacher breaks with his own values on a quest for the truth and is increasing entangled in a net of his own lies. Suddenly someone confesses to a murder that they couldn’t have committed, and the fragile cohesion of a youthful elite society is threatened to destroy itself.
