Bock for President


(Bock for President) Director: Houchang Allahyari, Tom-Dariusch Allahyari, A, 2009, original version / Czech and English subtitles, 90 min

In the middle of the second district of Vienna is the seat of a charity organization "Ute Bock", offering support to fugitives. Here the needy come to find lodging, pick up food, use free legal counselling, or postal services. Without any prospects of employment and any income, whole families in Austria often have to rely solely on the support from this organization. The former tutoress Ute Bock advocates for people whom nobody wants - without any claim for compensation and without the support of public finances. The directors capture typical work days of Ute Bock as well as precious moments from her private time, drawing a portrait of this exceptional woman with all her pros and cons.

The screening is in partnership with the Austrian Cultural Forum Prague.
