On the occasion of the festival Sotto le Stelle dell’Austria 2021, director Evi Romen will present her feature film Hochwald. Cinema Austriaco had the opportunity to have a chat with her and learn more about her film and her career. Interview by Marina Pavido.
Why not you, Evi Romen’s debut feature, focuses mainly on objects. Be it a funny wig symbolising an identity to be revealed or even just a quick selfie on a mobile phone. They are apparently insignificant objects that recur frequently throughout the feature film, immediately taking on a highly symbolic meaning.
