BEATRIX

Milena Czernovsky and Lilith Kraxner’s Beatrix is characterised by a very particular narrative development, in which the act of watching, of observing not always in a voyeuristic way, becomes the directors’ primary goal. The camera follows the protagonist during every moment of her day. Meanwhile, what happens before our eyes is simply life. At the Viennale 2021.

OUTSIDE NOISE

Ted Fendt’s Outside Noise depicts the normal everyday life of many young women who have yet to discover what will become of their lives. The calmness and contemplative rhythms of the mise en scène provide an excellent counterpoint to the inner torments of the protagonists. At the Viennale 2021.

DAS RAD

Das Rad by Friedl vom Gröller is the dream of a child. Or rather, of two children. Das Rad is a journey back in time, a return to childhood, a new discovery of oneself and the world around us. A new way of understanding reality that also reminds us of the great cinema of the past. At the Viennale 2021.
