West Coast Premiere

All that young student Klaus wants is a quiet place to study – somewhere where he can focus on his very important work.

However, Mother and Father, who are renting him a room in their family’s bunker, have different ideas…They need a VERY special kind of tutor for their son because Klaus will one day grow up to be a VERY important person.

Both absurdist and razor-sharp, Nikias Chryssos’s debut feature is a trip into the twilight zone of adolescence. Featuring bizarre performances, deadly punchlines and a talking gangrene leg wound named ‘Heinrich,’ DER BUNKER’ is unlike anything you’re likely to see this year.

If you’re a fan of DOGTOOTH or KLOWN, then you’ll be right at home in the weird world of Chryssos’s DER BUNKER, a creation combining laughs with very uneasy moments for a delicious and unforgettable mix.
