Feature-film „The best days“ in script-development with ÖFI
Jürgen Karasek´s new feature-film project „The best days“ received funding for script-development from the Austrian Filminstitute (ÖFI). Intense times of writing and talks with script-consultant George Walker Torres are planned for the summer.
18-year-old CHRISTOPH idealizes and admires his father ERNST, a renowned and award-winning neuropsychologist. After graduation he wants to follow his footsteps. Ernst, on the other hand, intensifies this perspective and tries to educate his son mentorlike to his double. When Christoph’s parents are killed in a mysterious car-accident and Ernst is posthumously accused of a large research scandal, everything that Christoph believes in seems questioned. From his despair there is only one way out: he must care for the innocence of his father, whatever it costs. A fight that brings Christoph to his limits – and beyond.
