IN MEMORY OF GUSTAV DEUTSCH

On the 2nd of November 2019, the director Gustav Deutsch left us. Considered to be among the most prominent names in Austrian avant-garde cinema, he worked in the seventh art for almost forty years, creating an enormous fresco of Austrian and world society, both contemporary and from the past, thanks also to a copious selection of amateur and archive footage.

THIS MOVIE IS A GIFT

In This Movie is a Gift, Anja Salomonowitz is not afraid to find new languages, to reinvent and rediscover herself. All this results in a true, feather-light hymn to life, one of the director’s most intimate and personal works. A film that accepts and elaborates on every aspect of life in an intelligent and never predictable way. Including death. At the Viennale 2019.
