Čefurji Raus! or: Why I had to Walk Up to the Tenth Floor Again

5. 12. - 5. 12. 2022

Salzburg, Austria

The energetic feature film ‘Čefurji raus’ by writer, columnist and director Goran Vojnović will be shown at DAS KINO in Salzburg. The screenplay is based on the 2008 novel of the same name, which is the most comprehensive treatment of immigration in Slovenian literature to date. He describes the fate of the so-called “Čefur”, as immigrants from the former Yugoslavia are colloquially and mostly derogatorily referred to. This also include the protagonist Marko and his friends. Čefurji often have trouble identifying with Slovenian culture. Their idiosyncratic behavior and youth language make for a special situation comedy.

In cooperation: prolit, DAS KINO Salzburg.
