Decolonization / Debt / Migration: The filmmaker Kurdwin Ayub accompanies her father Omar to the autonomous region of Kurdistan in northern Iraq, from where the family fled to Austria many years ago. She tries to fathom why her father desperately wants to buy a second apartment that is only a stone’s throw away from territory claimed by IS. Despite all the conflicts, there is a construction boom. Omar also wants to invest in the utopian future – to spite the Viennese tax office, out of homesickness or out of a newly awakened patriotism. One of the films that kicked off a new understanding of post-migrant cinema in Europe. (Can Sungu)
