Gutland

A film by Govin­da Van Mae­le.

Ear­ly one sum­mer morning a young man, with a secret stas­hed away in a duf­fel bag, emer­ges from the forest. In a near­by vil­la­ge he asks around for work, but the far­mers, sus­pi­cious to the point of hos­ti­li­ty, are not very forth­co­m­ing. Only when Lucy, the mayor’s unru­ly daugh­ter, takes a liking to him, does the vil­la­ge chan­ge its atti­tu­de: he is prompt­ly offe­red a job as a farm­hand and a cara­van to live in.

As time pas­ses and he is gra­du­al­ly inte­gra­ted into the com­mu­ni­ty, it emer­ges that he’s not the only one with a past to hide. Some­thing sinis­ter is lur­king under the imma­cu­la­te sur­face of this pic­tures­que litt­le world – and it is slow­ly drawing him in.
