Fluchtversuch (Escape Attempt)

Vojtech Jasný, BRD 1976, 95 Min., 16mm Min., OV
Followed by a talk with Zoran Terzić

Twelve-year-old Ivo Goran has come to Vienna from Yugoslavia with his parents. His father and siblings found work here. Since his mother left for Yugoslavia, Ivo's duties also include taking care of the household. Daily nagging and insults from the neighbors and arguments with the other children leave Ivo feeling all alone in the big city. He dreams of home, so one day he simply decides to run away. An exciting road movie set on the former "guest-worker route".
