The renowned Austrian documentarian Nikolaus Geyrhalter created in 'Over the years' something like the 'Boyhood' of non-fiction: a piece of more than three hours in which he has compiled 10 years of filming, since 2004 to 2014. For a decade Geyrhalter has followed some workers from a region of northern Austria since the days before closing the textile factory where they worked for a long time, until today. In this way the director gets to make an accurate and calm portrait about the lives of these men and what surrounds them: their livelihoods, falls, births, deaths... The film documents how they meet the challenges in life and carry on against all odds and was shown at the IDFA Festival 2015.
