VILLAGE YOUTH

The disappearance of cultural boundaries is something that can be observed not only in large cities, but also in a small provincial town in Austria. Emir is getting married tomorrow. It is an arranged marriage, something his best friend and soccer teammate Leo can’t accept. He has only 24 hours for crazy schemes and lots of alcohol to stop Emir from marrying a woman he’s never met. This film explores the question of how tolerant we’re willing to be toward other cultures.



  • Duration: 19 Min.
