«The point is to act in the present.»
The world is a small place for old Herr Senft in his little garden house, and now that he has lost his dog and last companion, it's a solitary existence as well. Chance brings a young Afghan into his house, and in just a few hours it is transformed for both men into the cave of the Cyclops, with no escape for either. NOBADI, Karl Markovics's darkest story to date, focusses on the fragility of identity, the legacy of failure to act and the chances of the present moment.
Toronto 2019: World premiere of NOBADI by Karl Markovics
An old man and a young refugee – they couldn’t have less in common – meet by pure chance and get inextricably tied together. In his third feature film, his darkest one to date, Karl Markovics explores the fatal connections between identity and existence. NOBADI will make its first appearance on screen at the 44th TORONTO IFF, celebrating its world premiere in the Contemporary World Cinema section.
