HINTERLAND

Oscar-winning Austrian director Stefan Ruzokwitzky rewinds the clock by a century for Hinterland, a visually striking period thriller set in Vienna at the start of the turbulent 1920s.

Kaiserlicht provided a large number of visual-effects for this amazing project, shot almost entirely on blue screen. The radically expressionistic visual approach was a special and exciting challenge for our team.

Vienna, 1920. The Austro-Hungarian Empire has collapsed. Peter Perg returns home from the Great War, after years of captivity. But the Vienna he comes home to is nothing like the place he once knew. The new Austrian Republic thrives on artistic freedom, but anti-democratic movements loom overhead. A stranger in his hometown, his life takes a turn for the worse when one of his former comrades is murdered. Suddenly the mysterious killings of veterans are mounting. Personally connected to the victims, Perg decides to bring the killer to justice.
