Director Michael Koch will be attending the screening on Tues 21 Feb.


Swiss director Michael Koch’s striking debut couldn’t be more urgent or relevant to the mood of modern Europe. Marija (Margarita Breitkreiz) is a vulnerable Ukrainian migrant worker in Dortmund. She projects an aura of strength, determination and resolve. She knows what she wants but first she has to make money, steer clear of the law and avoid the exploitation that seems parfor-the-course if you are a single woman. Breitkreiz will win your heart with her steely, implacable performance as an outsider struggling to claim her place in Europe’s promised land.

Swiss helmer Michael Koch's assured, no-nonsense debut paints a universally relevant portrait of disenfranchised immigrant life.
