HIDDEN

Everyone has something to hide. Michael Haneke knows this well. And he also knows that certain secrets and faults from the past can also have a strong, very strong impact on the present. In Hidden, therefore, the protagonist’s past returns in the most devious way.

BENNY’S VIDEO

In Benny’s Video, reality is what we see, but also what we can manipulate at will. Michael Haneke knows very well where to direct our gaze, simply letting the images speak for themselves and – through monitors that almost act as a ‘filter’ – showing us a distorted world, a sick world.

RAFFL

Christian Berger stages important moral questions without ever being judgmental. And his Raffl can deservedly be described as a living, pulsating feature film, a simple and complex feature film at the same time. A timeless film.

71 FRAGMENTS OF A CHRONOLOGY OF CHANCE

It is based on a real-life news story 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance. In the film – which is divided into five chapters, each concerning a particular day – everything takes place from October 12 to December 23, 1993. Everything leads up to a single event in which all the characters will be involved in one way or another. But how important is the human being in this feature film by Michael Haneke?

HAPPY END

What we see in Happy end is a crescendo of emotions in full Hanekian mode. There are no heroes, no villains, everyone is simultaneously victim and executioner. Including young people.
