Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2016

Adapted from Nils Mohl's eponymous novel, İlker Çatak's feature debut is a wild genre mix between a boxer film, urban western, road movie and music video, set at the end of the summer holidays in a drab neighborhood on the outskirts of Hamburg. Young boxing talent Mauser is preparing for a pivotal competition when his father kills his step-mother and flees. Trying to find his father, Mauser embarks on a journey through the world of music, psychedelia, violence, love, and a biblical thunderstorm. And where does the Native American come into all of this?... ONCE UPON A TIME IN INDIAN COUNTRY is a story radiating both heat and poetry.
