UNTEN

UNTEN

The documentary filmmaker Djordje Čenić sets out on an autobiographical journey through time, which begins in the mid-seventies in the Yugoslavian “guest worker milieu” in Linz and leads him to his original home town, which was destroyed by war, in today’s Croatia. In sometimes absurdly comical, sometimes tragic episodes telling of minor triumphs and major defeats, of homesickness and class oppositions, Čenić allows us deep insights into his family history, thereby illustrating the balancing act between “above” and “below”, exemplifying generations of guest workers.
