Austria 2014 115 mins. In German

Greider, a lone traveler, arrives in a small village in the Alps. Initially, no one wants him to stay, especially Brenner, who keeps the community under tight control with his threatening ways. But a few gold coins sway the townsfolk, and they opt to shelter Greider for the winter. Soon a tragic accident leads to the death of one of Brenner’s beloved sons. But when a second son is mysteriously killed, it seems evident that more than coincidence is at play. “The hills are alive with the sound of gunfire in this alpine revenge drama, a superior genre piece which applies classic western tropes to a remote Austrian mountain village.”—The Hollywood Reporter. This year’s Austrian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
