The growing tension between the last two remaining superpowers - China and Google - escalates in the early 21st century, and results in the global inferno of the "Google Wars". But the years go by, radioactive dust settles on old battlegrounds, and a New World rises from the ashes of the old. Fratt Aigner, a seedy journalist, and Alalia Grundschober, a nerdy technician, live and work in Mega City Schwechat: the biggest semi-urban sprawl in the foothills of what remained of the Alps. Newspaper mogul Thurnher von Pjölk assigns them a special task: to venture into the boondocks of the Gstetten and find the legendary Echsenfriedl. It is the beginning of a journey full of dangers, creatures and precarious working conditions. Written by
Invigorating no-budget agitprop craziness by Austrian art-tech-maniacs "monochrom". Grenzfurthner and his merry band of discourse-pranksters are well-known for creating interesting little universes (like "Soviet Unterzoegersdorf") to make entertaining political and philosophical statements. "Die Gstettensaga", their first feature film, is taking classic post-apocalyptic tropes to tell a story of subculture and its inevitable corruption and decay. Is it an allegory for the Egyptian Revolution of 2011? Or for the demise of punk? Or for the impossibility of freedom of information? All of it, I assume, and more... and spiced with plenty of nerdy references that will make you squeal with delight.
Gstettensaga is a lot of fun -- and it will leave you with a refreshingly bitter aftertaste.
