Želimir Žilnik's documentary 'Das schönste Land der Welt (The Most Beautiful Country in the World)' follows a group of young migrants in Vienna who break through the administrative labyrinths of checkings, gaining status and residence.
The main hero is 23-year-old Bagher from Afghanistan, who arrived in Austria in a great migrant wave in 2015. Mastering the German language and making new friends, Bagher is on the road of 'Europeanisation', when suddenly his grandfather Haydar arrives in Austria illegally, through Slovenia. This appeareance leads to discouragement, evocation of the past, conflicts and a series of new labyrinths, from which Bagher and his friends must find the way out.
Director Želimir Žilnik will be in attendance at the UK premiere.
