Import/Export chronicles two different migrations: a young woman who leaves behind her mother and young child in the Ukraine to begin a new life as a nurse in Vienna; and a headstrong young security guard called Paul who leaves Vienna to accompany his stepfather on a trip delivering gumball machines in Eastern Europe.
Blackly funny, filled with striking images shot by cameraman Ed Lachman (Erin Brockovich, Far From Heaven) and featuring extraordinarily potent performances from its cast, Import/Export is the new film from director Ulrich Seidl (Dog Days). Hailed by critics as a startling and bold film, it is without doubt recent European cinema's most provocative and audacious investigation of the post-Soviet universe and the new relations between East and West.
