WELCOME TO HINDAFING (WILLKOMMEN IN HINDAFING)

WELCOME TO HINDAFING

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2017

Always keen on a dodgy deal, provincial mayor Alfons Zischl wants to launder money to his Swiss accounts and kick his drug habit as well, at least until that darn paternity suit is settled. But nothing turns out as planned. Try as it might to project an idyllic image of family values, the village of Hindafing is locked in a struggle with its inner demons and they have the upper hand! By day, people go to the football club and practice Bikram Yoga. At night it's off to the swingers' club or scoring from the local meth dealer. Sparing nothing and nobody in its slaughtering of sacred social cows, the series takes a complex, FARGO-style look at the dark underbelly of our modern Western society: Character-driven, darkly comic and unexpectedly moving.
