A father and daughter are sitting by the pool. There’s nothing unusual in this, but a feeling of uneasiness grows in the viewer. Something uncanny is hiding behind the ordinary. Is it the strange colour of the girl’s skin, the repetitive dialogue, or the camera gazing at the half-naked child? This science fiction drama by Sandra Wollner, a strong new voice in Austrian cinema, has earned widespread acclaim and won the Encounters Award at the Berlin International Film Festival.
