The Fox might at first seem to be one of the many (too many?) films that depict a special friendship between humans and animals. And when approaching such stories, the risk of creating something overly rhetorical is higher than ever. Adrian Goiginger, fortunately, has managed to avoid such mistakes, focusing mainly on the childhood traumas of the young protagonist. At the Diagonale’23.
Andreas Horvath has shown us something very specific with simple but essential shots. And so, this interesting Zoo Lock Down immediately proves to be an extremely topical and necessary documentary. A simple and at the same time refined work that makes a studied minimalism its workhorse. At the Diagonale’23.
Cave Painting is a true visual experience. An essential film that in just fifteen minutes tells us about the past and present of our beloved cinema. Past and present that meet, mingle, merge and together draw an exhaustive picture of what cinema has realised in little more than a century. At the Diagonale’23.
Evelyne Faye’s camera follows its protagonists in their daily activities, letting them, from time to time, confide in it, recounting their normal everyday life, their dreams, their needs, their hopes. A quiet and relaxed atmosphere, with a predominantly contemplative mood, together with pastel-coloured cinematography, is what most characterises this precious little The Way you shine. At the Diagonale’23.
Vienna Calling is an exciting journey into pop, underground Vienna. A film in which music and words go hand in hand, in which we can finally ‘peek behind the scenes’ and get to know the most important artists of the contemporary music scene better, while also sharing with them moments from their private lives. At the Diagonale’23.
