Six teenagers in Vienna. Six stories, that are subtly interweaved. A film about identity, love and sexuality in a fast-paced, digital society which offers both possibilities and challenges. Adolescents who choose their distinctive ways of living according to available opportunities, who question existing concepts of society and try out their own. Floating between childhood and adulthood, they proove how being young can be lighthearted and troublesome at the same time. It’s an observation of fragments from the lives of these in their own ways rebellious young human beings and their love stories.
(Iliana Estanol & Johanna Lietha)

Sex tapes and skype dates, club nights and dinners with parents. In a series of episodes, LOVECUT follows six young adults in their search for love, relationship, and physicality. The internet’s anonymity and short-lived nature shape the realities in which the young people try out relationships and explore their own identities. A flickering drift through a phase of life that releases wild energies - productive as well as destructive. (Diagonale `20)
