Die Kinder der Toten

Synopsis

Elfriede Jelinek's monumental novel "Die Kinder der Toten", her most important one according to her own assessment,
served as the template for a free movie adaptation produced in the original locations near the places where the Nobel Prize
Laureate grew up. A SUPER 8 holiday film from Upper Styria slowly turns into the resurrection of "undead" spooks. The
question of the (im)possibility of adequate processing of accrued debt shoots through all those aspects – nature, culture,
society, history – that are still part of national identity today.
