DRIFTER

DRIFTER

A close-up portrait of a rebellious racecar-driving teen coping with the twists and turns of life in rural Hungary. The young rebel, Ricsi, lives his life on the edge. “Trouble” is his middle name. He is unruly, restlessly scaring up problem after problem. Driving cars without a license, theft and escaping from the cops are all just a part of his daily routine, much to his parents’ despair. Ricsi won’t stand for routines nor the expectations of his deadbeat father. After all, where was he when Ricsi needed him the most?

GÁBOR HÖRCHER, born in 1980 in Budapest, is a Hungarian filmmaker. He has lived in Great Britain, Greece, the US, France, and Cambodia, where he taught courses on human rights at a local university. Hörcher is the co-founder of KraatsFilm. Drifter, his first feature, won the Best First Appearance Award at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam 2014. His latest fiction short film, Ricsi, premiered at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. // Films (selection): Drifter (2014, doc), Ricsi (2014, short)
