Director's Biography:


Adrian Goiginger was born in 1991 in Salzburg, Austria. He is a writer and director, whose directorial debut The Best of All Worlds (2017) became a break-out hit after premiering at the Berlinale in 2017 and winning more than 100 awards around the world, including Best European First Film at the Zlin FF and the Best Narrative Feature Award at the New York City Independent FF and five prizes at the Austrian Film Awards in 2018. He also wrote and directed Above The World (2022). The Fox is his third feature film.


The Fox is the true story of Franz Streitberger, a motorcycle courier for the Austrian Army who was soon drafted into the German Wehrmacht. At the beginning of the Second World War, the introverted young soldier encounters a wounded fox cub, which he then looks after as if it were his own child and takes with him to occupied France. Through this unique friendship with the wild animal, his own past as an outcast farmer's son, which he has always run away from, slowly catches up with him...
