Inhalt

Icelandic-born Maria Solrun Sigurdardottir is making her feature directorial debut with the melodrama "Jargo". "It is about love and treachery," says Sigurdardottir, who sees herself in the tradition of the magic realism of Icelandic literature and cinema and observes that "comedy in tragedy is something I take for granted. It isn′t anything that I have picked up from other directors. It′s my view of life."

"Jargo" centers on a young German "outsider" of the same name who has grown up in Saudi Arabia and comes to Berlin with his mother after his father′s suicide. Here he gets to know the petty criminal Kamil, a young Turkish boy who has grown up in Germany, and is constantly hounded by the ghost of his father reminding him of his promise "to become a man" before he turns sixteen.
