Running on Empty

  • Austria
Audio Tracks 

Claudia was 15 when she had her son. The two now live in a public housing apartment together with her brother and their mother in Vienna. None of them has a job, but what they lack the most is perspective. Over the course of three years, director Lisa Weber gently uncovers what goes on in this family when nothing ever really seems to happen. We are invited to take part and look beyond the clichés of reality TV to discover real people who cause us to laugh, feel shocked or even deeply moved.
