New York Premiere

Dir. Gregor Schmidinger, Austria, 2019, 88 mins

Seeking escape from his drab life at home and at work in a slaughterhouse, Jakob retreats into online worlds in search of excitement. After making a connection with tight-torsoed Kristjan in a cam chatroom, Jakob ventures out to meet up in person, leading to a mind-bending journey to the center of the self that will irreparably alter both of their lives.

A twisted thriller about anxiety, grief, and loneliness, NEVRLAND defies expectations up to, and including, its wild conclusion. An absurd fusion of genres, Gregor Schmidinger’s startling and confident feature debut is an indescribable depiction of love, loss, and drug use in the Internet era.
