Feeling lonely, useless, and aimless, and now jobless, 50-year-old Slovak power-plant engineer Ágoston heads to Latvia in the hopes of fishing or maybe finding a job. On the way, he encounters many strange things ranging from a congenial woman and a grim Russian man to a stuffed rabbit. Taking its name from its hero’s gradual casting “out” of society, Out is a road film with an absurdist point of view that blends gorgeous scenery with xenophobia in Europe. Inspired by real events from the life of Hungarian director György Kristóf, who was born in Slovakia like his protagonist Ágoston, this feature debut premiered at A Certain Look section of Cannes.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
