AGONIE (2016) BY DAVID CLAY DIAZ
SUNDAY, MAR 26 2017, 06:00 PM - 09:30 PM
29-year old director and screenwriter David Clay Diaz is presenting his first cine film Agony, a German-Austrian production. The film premiered at the 66th Berlinale festival – where it was nominated for Best First Feature – and won the Bavarian Culture Prize. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with David Clay Diaz and director and producer Stephan Littger, as well as a reception at SVA "Beatrice" Theatre.
ABOUT THE FILM
“On November 29, a young man murders his girlfriend and dismembers her corpse. The head, torso, and limbs are found in various dumpsters in Vienna. The motive for the crime remains unclear.” These preluding words introduce the film. It tells the stories of two young men, Christian (24) and Alex (17), who are living two very dissimilar lives, that don’t seem to be connected. One of them will have committed murder by the end of the film.
In German, with English Subtitles
