Fiction, 105 minutes, AT/CH 2017
Directed by Sebastian Brauneis
«Magicians» follows the intersections of the lives of very contradictory characters. Around the story of a boy who vanishes and reappears, the film descends into the depths of the human psyche caught between impotence, manipulation and empowerment. An everyday parable about humans locked up in the maze of fact and fiction.
Based on different short stories by the Austrian novelist Clemens Setz, the film script was written in collaboration with director Sebastian Brauneis and actor Nicholas Ofczarek. A Film Company is coproducing this Austrian «New Wave» psycho-shocker for Superfilm in Vienna.
