»Everybody is personally convinced that they are contributing towards improving the world. If you look at it from that angle, it's much funnier when the opposites collide. That was also important for me in the patchwork family: conflicts don't arise because somebody is a bad character but because people are forced together whose interests and goals are just very different.
Eva Spreitzhofer about WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO DESERVE THIS?
«It's a patriarchal instrument of suppression.»
Wanda's world seems to be in order. But one day her daughter Nina turns up, her head wrapped in a scarf, declaring that she has converted to Islam. Wanda’s life, her entire moral concept based on tolerance and feminism, is shaken to the core. In her feature film debut WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO DESERVE THIS? Eva Spreitzhofer adopts a witty approach to the absurdities of a social debate which has recently become dominated by religious considerations.
