Pichler’s feature film debut centres on 20-year-old Rasa, a forceful young Muslim Swedish/Balkan “take-no-shit” factory worker, who lives in a small village in the south of Sweden. When she loses her job due to the factory making redundancies, she faces the system of unemployment. With no high school diploma, no job, but her boots deeply stained with the mud of the small town she grew up in, Rasa finds herself on collision course with society.
Born in 1980 as daughter of Bosnian and Austrian parents. Studied at the School of Film Directing in Gothenburg. Her work often incorporate amateurs and focuses on social class issues as well as cultural identity in the searching for authenticity and the unexpected in everyday life.
