Production: Österreich in Bild und Ton


A mainly contemplative mood is the leitmotif of Der Heideboden. A documentary of undoubted historical importance that, despite its rather elementary mise en scène, is a perfect witness to a bygone era in which cinema could only take on certain connotations. An era whose consequences were felt for many, many years. But also, at the same time, an era in which, despite everything, cinema did not stand still.


The mood of Lunz und seine Seen is particularly romantic and contemplative, and unlike the directorial approach adopted in the numerous other propaganda documentaries made in those years, it aims above all to give the film its own, marked personality.
