Enough, Already! Changing the Status of Women in Film and Television
Manny fences cars for quick cash. When he partners with his buddy Jesus, their friendship is jeopardized by a disturbing discovery.
After graduating from the University of Applied Sciences in Salzburg, Austria, Christoph started his career in shooting and directing music videos and commercials as well as writing several screenplays for an award winning TV show in Austria.

As a Fulbright scholar, Kuschnig moved to New York City to pursue a MFA in film at Columbia University. In 2008 he was honored with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association foreign filmmaker's award.

Kuschnig is drawn to exploring the dark side of the human psyche, combining a very sensitive and visual approach. "Eiko," his previous short, shot in Austria, deals with child abuse and the protagonist's peculiar processing of such trauma. The media presence of child abuse scandals in Austria inspired Kuschnig to reverse the role of the victim and turn her into an offender.
