INTERVIEW WITH RUTH BECKERMANN

In 1906, Josefine Mutzenbacher wrote the erotic novel “Josefine Mutzenbacher: oder Die Geschichte einer Wienerischen Dirne von ihr selbst erzählt”, which caused quite a stir at the time. Director Ruth Beckermann decided, more than a hundred years later, to see how this novel is received by people today. This is how the documentary MUTZENBACHER, awarded Best Film in the Encounters section at the Berlinale 2022 and premiered in Austria at the Viennale 2022, came to life. Cinema Austriaco had the opportunity to have a chat with her and learn more about her film. Interview by Marina Pavido.
