The film, shot at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, shows the touching encounters of people from all over the world who are trying to find a foreign country and learn a new language. “ATELIER DE CONVERSATION” celebrated the international premiere at the A-Festival in the Czech Republic and was the only Austrian film in competition. It was shown in Austria for the first time on the Diagonale in Graz and is expected to be shown in theaters in the beginning of 2018.
