Project Description

The Fatherless

A film by Marie Kreutzer

Drama | AT | 2011 | 112min

They never expected Kyra to turn up again. The three brothers and sisters who come together when their father dies are stunned by the appearance of their sister. Kyra suddenly vanished twenty years ago during the breakup of the hippie commune where they were all born. She is like a stranger to them now… but when she discovers that her very existence has been kept secret, she starts digging up old mysteries. And soon all the brothers and sisters find themselves unearthing the roots of their childhood memories they had suppressed in order to survive.

In her feature film debut Marie Kreutzer embarks upon an intriguing and disturbing journey into the past, a gripping study of belonging and solitude, bonds and freedom.
