A co-production with Servus TV

SYNOPSIS

In KINDERS we accompany children and adolescents with various backgrounds throughout their difficult, confusing and funny day-to-day life and get to know their perspectives and stances. The central theme is the edgy musical education program ((superar)) founded by Caritas, Wiener Konzerthaus and the Vienna Boysʼ Choir in which the children are transformed from "invisible" outsiders into self-confident young people and learn to express their hidden potential through the power of music. The children themselves realise how their daily lives visibly change as a result of the discussions that accompany the music training.

QUOTES

»Kindersʼ, a film currently in cinemas, shows how those who are excluded and powerless find their voices. Are you also angry about how things are? Then watch this!« – DIE PRESSE

»Making music together brings hidden potential to the surface and creates community where a feeling of isolation rules.« – ORF

»The Riahi brothers spent almost four years with the children before and while filming. They walk amongst them invisibly and interact with them as equals. [...]« – SYNCHRON – DAS FILMMAGAZIN, Ö1

»The childrenʼs sincerity is awe-inspiring and speaks in favour of the filmmakersʼ empathy. DOP Mario Minchmayr also deserves his due praise here; he knows how to equally capture facial expressions and group dynamics.”« – WIENER ZEITUNG
