DIAGONALE’23 – IN REFERENZ: MARISA MELL, LUDWIG WÜST AND MORE…

With the In Referenz series, the Diagonale interlaces, mediates, and expands emphases of its current festival program. In 2023, together with the Filmarchiv Austria, the Festival of Austrian Film is dedicating a four-part cinematic homage to the Graz-born actress Marisa Mell, which will be accompanied by an extensive exhibition at the Graz Museum. Mell, the “Austrian Sophia Loren”, was one of the most famous women in European cinema in the 1960s and 1970s – a woman of the world from Graz, a rediscovery!
