Actor: Victor Tremmel



With a directorial approach that is as essential as possible – and with evident influences from the cinema of Michael Haneke – Markus Schleinzer – together with Kathrin Resetarits – has opted in Michael for a skilful minimal direction in staging the events of the two protagonists. A minimal direction made up of essential shots, fixed camera and very little dialogue. In competition at the Cannes Film Festival 2011.



Sunspots (the last short film before Barbara Albert’s debut into the world of full-length films, made in 1998), while presenting a decidedly experimental approach, is strikingly reminiscent of Nordrand, the debut film by the Viennese director, actress and film producer, directed the following year.
