HANA, DUL, SED …

Hana, dul, sed … is a documentary that plays on contrasts. The contrast between the greyness of a city, Pyongyang, and the colours of traditional clothing. The contrast between the coldness of a sterile everyday life and a tender chat with lifelong friends. Brigitte Weich has given us an intelligent, captivating and at times even moving work.

SOULS OF A RIVER

Souls of a River is a long stream of consciousness. The story of two men with two distinct backgrounds who have much more in common than it might initially seem. The story of two individuals, but also, at the same time, the story of the world in which we live, of a capitalist society that constantly makes us search far from home for the longed-for serenity. At the Diagonale’23.

WEIYENA – EIN HEIMATFILM

Hands kneading dumplings, an entire family gathered around the table to cook, food being prepared with love and bringing everyone together. Just as oriental cinema has always shown us. And again, views of Shanghai and Beijing from above – cities that have suffered much over the years and where the consequences of war are still evident – but also the wide streets and parks of the Austrian capital. All this is Weiyena – Ein Heimatfilm. At the Diagonale 2021.

INLAND

Inland is a documentary that plays on ambivalence, on inner conflict, on the juxtaposition of different realities within a European capital that, since time immemorial, has always been a crossroads of many cultures, due to its particular geographical position.
