The idiosyncratic, low-budget productions of Austrian filmmaker Daniel Hoesl narrate exemplary disruptions and upheavals with mischievous and post-heroic defiance of standardized milieus. Following eight shorts, Soldate Jeannette is the media arts graduate’s first feature-length film. The film, which has won international awards, revolves around two women, each running away from something, who meet at a countryside bowling alley: Fanni, who hails from the upper middle class, is broke and seeks to escape the strictures of a life ruled by money; Anna, the younger woman, can no longer bear the machismo on the farm.
