Nevrland

A teenager is on a journey to discover himself in a coming-of-age tale that blends in horror to produce a film that isn’t for the faint-hearted.

This bold and challenging film centres on handsome 17-year-old Jakob (Simon Frühwirth), a shy boy who works at a pig processing plant by day and by night is a webcam obsessive. When he meets up with 26-year-old webcam pal Kristjan, events soon escalate out of control, like a bad trip, as a haunting techno soundtrack carries the action forward to its climax. Gregor Schmidinger’s drama has a striking visual style and a fearless sense of psychedelic surrealism, echoing films like Suspiria. Particularly arresting are sex scenes intercut with images of pig carcasses being butchered. Balanced somewhere between a psychological thriller and a portrait of deep anxiety, Nevrland is an altogether unforgettable experience.
