The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Karl Markovics’s third feature film tells of the fateful encounter of two vastly unequal men, a young Afghan refugee and a supposedly harmless retiree. In an increasingly uncompromising scenario reminiscent of a chamber play, Nobadi links past and present traumas. The level of escalation is shocking. Irony or not: the future doesn’t seem very hopeful.
