In I am the Tigress, the two filmmakers opted for the most neutral directorial approach possible and let the images speak for themselves.

At the Diagonale 2021.
Another Coin for the Merry-Go-Round is a visual and auditory experience that enthralls us from the very first minutes. A thrilling, painful and also powerfully poetic film. A ride on a merry-go-round that we wish would never end. At the Diagonale 2021.
In Madison, the Tyrolean mountains provide the perfect setting for wild bike rides, tortuous curves and steep descents. And the director’s camera handles the space perfectly, moves with agility along the slopes and trails, and gives us welcome adrenalin-fuelled moments. At the Diagonale 2021.
