Program: Provinz-Spezial: Kein Schöner Land ÖFM Programm 2: Jungs und Mädchen

From a teenager’s perspective, the province is a particularly backward habitat, which is too tight, too small, too much out of fashion and has to be left behind. A change can be brought about by a burning swimming pool that promises action, intoxication; and hormones that blend out the province, or by breaking the structures that make up what we mean when we say “provincial.” 

Director: Idar Alfred Johannessen
