TIRZA
2010 Oscar Selection, Netherlands

Jörgen Hofmeester has just lost his job, and his favorite daughter Tirza is leaving on a trip to Africa with her new Moroccan boyfriend. When Jörgen doesn't hear from his daughter for a few weeks, the over-bearing father desperately heads to Namibia to find her. Slowly becoming unhinged in the desert heat, Jörgen starts mixing past and present, hallucinating in a booze-soaked fever. His only ally in the delusional adventure is a child prostitute who helps him in his search. Based on the masterful novel by Arnon Grunberg, this exploration of white middle-class angst is full of dark turns and unsettling twists. Best Director, 2010 Netherlands Film Festival.
