DER RABE

Today, Austrian avant-garde cinema is extremely prolific and full of interesting ideas. Yet few people know that it was officially born after the end of World War II and, specifically, in 1951, the year in which artist, painter and photographer Kurt Steinwendner made his Der Rabe, a highly experimental film transposition of the famous poem The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.
