At the barracks
For 23 years the director’s grandmother ran the canteen of the military barracks in Straß, Austria. The barracks is a castle. Here she lives as a little girl with her cousins, her mother and two aunts, who also spent their childhood among soldiers. Adolescent girls in military barracks, the home of a large family in a bellicose environment. This autobiographic film is a family reconstruction on site, a step into the space of memories and imagination while observing the daily routines of the soldiers now posted there.
