Part of the Austrian Film Season in partnership with Regent Street Cinema

A village between the world wars: seven maids and farm hands inherit their dead master’s farm. While The Inheritors (Die Siebtelbauern, 1997) has all the hallmarks of a modern-day Heimatfilm – a genre which idealised the beauty of nature and served as post-war escapism – the film actually paints a much darker picture of Austrian rural realities at the time.

Austria, 1997, 90 mins, German with English subtitles, directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky
