Encore! Presented by the Goethe-Institut Boston.
Xhafer, a 45 year old, Kosovo-born pharmaceutical engineer living in Germany, suddenly feels discriminated against and bullied at work because of his ethnic background. When Xhafer finds a dead rat hanging from the gate in front of his home, it is immediately clear to him that his racist colleagues could be behind it. Every occurrence, every word, every gesture is taken as evidence. Xhafer’s uneasiness grows every day. His German wife, Nora, is tired of him playing the race card all the time. Do his colleagues simply dislike him? Or is there more to their hostility? Is this all in his mind, or is it the actual reality?
