EINE FAHRT DURCHS ÖTZTAL

In Eine Fahrt durchs Ötztal we can notice, in addition to the picturesque landscapes and villages visited, a special focus on the people encountered and the tourists themselves, further enhanced by important close-ups or shots in which we can see them intent on their activities.

FLÖSSEREI AUF DER SALZA

Director Karl Köfinger always proved to be quite courageous when it came to experimenting with new languages and new ways of understanding cinema, while adapting, in part, to the norms of the time. His Flösserei auf der Salza can therefore be considered, today, one of his most unusual and courageous works, a precious document of the past and of Austrian film history.

VON SALZBURG NACH LOFER

We are in Austria, between the late 1920s and early 1930s, between the two world wars. And if the consequences of the first, terrible war are still being felt strongly, there are already hints of what will happen a few years from now. How much longer will these carefree days depicted in Von Salzburg nach Lofer last?

WIEN – MARIAZELL UND ZURÜCK

Suggestive landscapes, immense expanses of green and, last but not least, a vehicle full of tourists enjoying the panorama are, therefore, the absolute protagonists of this short and precious Wien – Mariazell und zurück, which, with a running time of about one and a half minutes, gives us a full idea of the beauty of the places we are visiting and all their many potentials.
