DER MEINEIDBAUER

Der Meineidbauer (1926) is the first film by Louise Kolm-Fleck and Jakob Fleck made in Germany, although filming had already taken place in Austria several years earlier. A film that, in terms of many of its technical characteristics, classifies as a hybrid film, a true gem of Austrian and German cinema that perfectly straddles two nations and two different decades. At the Viennale 2019, as part of the retrospective dedicated to Louise Kolm-Fleck.
