BEAUTIFUL GIRL

Dealing with love – and, above all, understanding its true meaning – is not at all easy for Charlie and her friends. The same applies to eroticism, which they consider almost an antidote against boredom, but which, in fact, pervades the entire Beautiful Girl with a pulsating, implicit tension.

SPRING ON ICE

Spring on Ice, alongside a rather simple and linear screenplay, sees a mise-en-scène that is predominantly theatrical, but also extremely spectacular, colourful and lively, within which elegant figures move in front of the camera, in a series of carefully choreographed performances that successfully create a balanced mixture of modern dance and Viennese waltz.

BOJO BEACH

What immediately impresses in Bojo Beach is the extraordinary calm with which the fishermen carry out their tasks. Their gestures, accompanied by their songs, are reminiscent – especially when they are intent on pulling their nets on the beach – almost of a choreography. And the sound of the water, for its part, conveys even more a sense of extraordinary quiet, of a constant repetition of events.

VIENNESE ACTIONISM – ARTISTS, WRITERS AND FILMMAKERS REBEL

Reality, the everyday and human bodies take on completely new and unexpected forms in the works of Viennese Actionism.
