Die Migrantigen

by Arman T. Riahi Focus Competition

Wannabe actor Benny, who still lives with his mother, and ad designer Marko, who rides around on a motorbike more expensive than he can afford, are hanging around on a rough Viennese inner-city estate when they’re discovered by the TV reporter Marlene Weizenhuber. On a quest for protagonists with a ‘migration background’ for her documentary series about social conflict, Marlene has found exactly what she was looking for. Benny and Marko edge their bets, call each other Omar and Tito and play at being ‘typical migrants’ with a gangster attitude for the naïve TV crew. The two Viennese have little idea of how hardened small-time criminal migrants really are. Even less do they know about the homeland of their parents. It is time, then, to get some advice from ‘real’ foreigners… granted they even exist at all! Arman Riahi’s second feature-length film DIE MIGRANTIGEN is a pleasantly cheeky, politically incorrect comedy that positively relishes in clichés, false identities and delightful misunderstandings.
