Watch Gregor Schmidinger’s Austrian short film ‘Homophobia’
Homophobia follows the story of a teenager in the Austrian Military Forces whose feelings for a comrade come to the surface during their last night patrolling the Austrian-Hungarian border.
“Laws can prevent people from doing crimes, but they don’t change people’s thinking. Art can touch people on an emotional level and really make an impact”, says director Gregor Schmidinger, “People often connect homophobia with hate, but it’s really about fear. It’s the fear of the unknown—and sometimes of the unknown within ourselves.”
