Neue Fenster is a kind of “return to the origins”, when we still had to become familiar with this new, bizarre invention that was the cinematograph. Just as the light from the projector illuminates the screen, the light coming in through the new windows at vom Gröller’s house is about to offer us not one, but many new spectacles. At the Viennale 2022.
In Drowned, we see how Friedl vom Gröller staged her own death. To this end, therefore, the director made use of no less than two forms of artistic expression (poetry and music), in order to realise an entirely new and subjective work that finds its definitive fulfilment in film. At the Viennale 2022.
2020 shows us what we have not been able to see in recent months. And it does so in an ironic but also highly provocative way. Friedl vom Gröller shows us an unusual 2020, a ‘forbidden’ 2020, which in sharp black and white almost takes on the connotations of a dream. At the Viennale 2021.
Das Rad by Friedl vom Gröller is the dream of a child. Or rather, of two children. Das Rad is a journey back in time, a return to childhood, a new discovery of oneself and the world around us. A new way of understanding reality that also reminds us of the great cinema of the past. At the Viennale 2021.
