Superworld Superwelt

Karl Markovics / Austria / 2015 / 120 min

40-year-old Gabi Kovanda, supermarket employee, leads an ordinary life between family and work. Gabi’s husband is a roadman and her son Ronnie a soldier who still lives with his parents. Her older daughter lives in Vienna and only visits on the weekend. One day when Gabi comes home from work something happens that changes her life in a single moment. It isn’t visible, it makes no sound, and yet it strikes her like a bolt from the sky. Gabi’s family members find it hard to cope with her long monologues, incomprehensible ramblings and sudden religious zeal.

A realistically structured real-life story entering the supernatural realm of divine presence. An unusual reflection on social and personal issues, Superworld explores intuitive grasp of the unfathomable. 

 “As opposed to Breathing, Superworld is a more dialogical film, the protagonist likes to talk to the outside world. But cinematically, I have not so much relied on image metaphors: what you see is what you get. I have avoided it where possible, the great unknown, whose voice we cannot hear, whose outward shape we do not see, after whom you cannot form an image in line with the Bible and Koran. In this respect the difference with Breathing is clear.” (Karl Markovics)
