Stills/ Fotos Regie

Witness a young and disoriented k. & k. officer's stream of consciousness as he is drifting through a sleepless night in search for a viable escape. Because when day breaks, comes the hour of truth, and with it, the time of his death. "Inside Lieutenant Gustl" is more than a nostalgic reminiscence of long gone days. A hundred years later we find ourselves in a quite familiar situation: in desperate need to frame our own identity, we are longing for authenticity and a binding reference system in the face of the overwhelming possibilities of the present. And in search for orientation parts of our society are calling for border walls and identifiable enemies.
