The joint suicide of three friends shocks a small community in Tyrol. With no motive or suicide note, their relatives are left in bitter uncertainty. The confused search for answers plays out in routines that long ago became automatic – the baking of a cake, work in a grocery store… MÄRZ tells a story without resolution, a story with many gaps. “Only one thing is certain, you can leave,” says one of the fathers. How does everyday life, which from the outside doesn’t seem to have changed, ever get back to normal?

Spotlight on
Andi Winter is an allrounder: Color grader, cameraman and assistant, master editor, supporter and sometimes actor. He embodies the flexibility and do-it-yourself spirit of a digitally democratized generation that for the most part worked and still works in precarious conditions. More than one hundred local film productions from all aesthetic corners wouldn’t look the same without Andi Winter’s contribution. Nonetheless, almost no one outside the industry knows his name – as is typical for talented film workers who operate between the lines.
