The pain and heartache of young love is achingly laid bare in Monja Art’s feature film Seventeen which was recently screened at the BFI’s Flare Film Festival.
Set in rural Austria, in the final hot humid weeks before school breaks up for summer, the film plunges into the emotional rollercoaster ride of a period in life, characterised by unlimited opportunities and missed chances.
This summer's new Cineclub series New Austrian Cinema highlights some of the best new films from Austria. Featuring emerging directors, contemporary subjects and a variety of film genres this series is an opportunity to experience the diversity and talent of Austria’s thriving film scene.
Austria, 2017, 104 mins, German with English subititles, directed by Monja Art
