THE STANDSTILL

The Standstill is an extremely precious and important documentary. Probably one of the most valuable works bearing witness to the recent pandemic. A highly accurate and meticulous aesthetic, as usual in Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s works, did the rest and gave us immortal images, images that fascinate us, but, at the same time, that hit us like a punch in the stomach. At the Viennale 2023.

WASHED ASHORE

There is a special world that is told in Washed Ashore. This, in fact, is the world of fishermen, of cemetery keepers, of Buddhist monks, of homeless people, of soldiers used to gather for their exercises far from residential areas. A world where many cultures come together with dozens of different stories. Stories and people who, however, have something great in common: the Danube.
