]]>HOME RUN - New cinema from Austria]]>

What is the texture of this material – what does it feel like? The film investigates the phenomenon of traditional costumes in all its diversity – including their cultural and political background, and the national legends surrounding them – from the earliest times to the present-day, featuring examples from Austria, Bavaria, Switzerland and South Tyrol. It focuses on the habitat and dress-codes of the individual protagonists or groups, exploring the political and social significance of rituals and lifestyles, and the exuberant symbolism associated with them. It shows different approaches to tradition in relation to the conflicting demands of modern times, and examines the construction of identity and the idea of ‘home’.
