Synopsis
In his follow-up to the extraordinary and critically acclaimed film, DOG DAYS, Ulrich Seidl once again takes us on a journey of the dark underbelly of human behaviour. IMPORT EXPORT tells two stories which move in diametrically opposed directions. Olga is a young nurse and mother living in the Ukraine who, wanting more from life, seeks an escape from her low-paying job. She finds the answer in the west, in Austria, a land with opportunity and without crippling poverty. Paul is a young Austrian in debt and without work or meaning – but he finds opportunity in the east, on a job with his stepfather setting up video gambling machines in the Ukraine. East and West, Ukraine and Austria – two individual fates, two opposite directions.
