Miami Premiere Engagement!


Directed by VALESKA GRISEBACH/Germany/2017/2hrs, 1min.

With Meinhard Neumann, Reinhardt Wetrek, Syuleyman Alilov Letifov

6An intense, slow-burning thriller, Western follows a group of German construction workers installing a hydroelectric plant in remote rural Bulgaria. The foreign land awakens the men’s sense of adventure, but tensions mount when, Meinhard, the strong, silent and newcomer to the group, starts mixing with the local villagers. The two sides speak different languages and share a troubled history. Can they learn to trust each other — or is the stage being set for a showdown?

(In German, Bulgarian, English, with English subtitles)

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Film Un Certain Regard

New York Film Festival, Toronto Int. Film Festival

CRITIC’S PICK! "Beautifully complicated, rigorously straightforward. There is no doubting Ms. Grisebach’s filmmaking... WESTERN is as precise as a dropped pin on a GPS map, which makes its sense of mystery all the more powerful."- A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"A powerful, deeply human and intricately political drama... reminiscent of Claire Denis' Foreign Legion cine-poem, Beau Travail."- Daniel Kasman, MUBI Notebook
