Actor: Anne Mertin



Made in 1985, Sea Journey into the Night is an extremely topical and courageous feature film that takes a close look at the role of women within the society in which we live, resulting in a deep and never banal reflection not only on patriarchy, but also – and above all – on the importance of loving oneself. At the Viennale 2023, as part of the Filmarchiv Austria’s retrospective Keine Angst.


If Tempo – Oscar-winning director Stefan Ruzowitzky’s first feature film – on the one hand treads the coming-of-age path already dealt with over and over again in Austria, on the other hand, shows a closer look than ever before at what is being realised at the same time in the rest of the world, resulting in a product with an international flavour with many typical features of 1990s mainstream cinema.
