Conceived as a minimalist vademecum, Living together, the newest documentary by director Thomas Fürhapter, shows, through a clever use of static camera, a series of extremely intense images.
27 Storeys immediately turns out to be an extremely intimate and personal, documentary, but also objective enough for a clear observation of the reality shown to us. The viewer has complete freedom to draw his or her own conclusions. At the Diagonale’23.
What immediately stands out while watching He Flew Ahead – Karl Schwanzer is the choice of structuring the film on two different levels: on the one hand, the documentary develops in a purely classical way, on the other hand, fiction takes over and Karl Schwanzer magically comes to life thanks to actor Nicholas Ofczarek.
Reality and fiction constantly alternate in Florian Flicker’s No Name City. Visitors have an idyllic impression of the place, while the camera, at the same time, is ready to reveal its every secret. Within the retrospective Österreich real of the Filmarchiv Austria.
Photography and cinema of reality in its purest sense are the pillars of The Photographer in front of the Camera. And once again, the unique directorial approach of Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel, made up of moments of observation and discreet following, succeeded in making us feel part of a world we knew only vaguely.
Are you sleeping, brother Jakob? is immediately characterised by a simple composition of images, where distinct colours, now bright – as in the valley where the four boys find themselves – and now darker – as at night, outside a mountain hut – almost become the absolute protagonists.
Movements of a Nearby Mountan (original title: Bewegungen eines nahen Bergs) – directed by Sebastian Brameshuber, immediately stands out for its hyper-realistic approach, while at the same time skilfully combining past and present, reality and legends, material and spiritual. All in a film that immediately stands out for its delicate lyrism.
