THOSE WHO FALL HAVE WINGS
JEDER DER FÄLLT HAT FLÜGEL
2015, 93 min, Austria, Dir: Peter Brunner

Writer-director Peter Brunner’s calm meditation on loss and grief won the Special Prize of the Jury at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Asthmatic adolescent Kati (Jana McKinnon) cannot imagine a life without her beloved grandmother (Renate Hild), but their time together is drawing short. Kati’s struggle to bid farewell to the dying woman while holding on to her memories becomes all the more poignant given Brunner’s gorgeous visual aesthetic. In German with English subtitles.
