BEATRIX

Milena Czernovsky and Lilith Kraxner’s Beatrix is characterised by a very particular narrative development, in which the act of watching, of observing not always in a voyeuristic way, becomes the directors’ primary goal. The camera follows the protagonist during every moment of her day. Meanwhile, what happens before our eyes is simply life. At the Viennale 2021.

OUTSIDE NOISE

Ted Fendt’s Outside Noise depicts the normal everyday life of many young women who have yet to discover what will become of their lives. The calmness and contemplative rhythms of the mise en scène provide an excellent counterpoint to the inner torments of the protagonists. At the Viennale 2021.

DAS RAD

Das Rad by Friedl vom Gröller is the dream of a child. Or rather, of two children. Das Rad is a journey back in time, a return to childhood, a new discovery of oneself and the world around us. A new way of understanding reality that also reminds us of the great cinema of the past. At the Viennale 2021.

SEKUNDENARBEITEN

Sekundenarbeiten is entirely shot on film. A return to the true essence of cinema. In the same way, Liselott Berschorner’s blank sheet is almost like a kind of rough diamond. A rough diamond that is about to be carved before our eyes and that, thanks to this particular process, seems to us even more precious. At the Viennale 2021.

KRAI

Krai is an intimate and personal film that immediately makes us feel part of a world that is initially unknown to us. The director has opted for the most essential approach possible. The reality he depicts needs no further frills and is wonderful just as it is. Metacinema and documentary cinema come together to create something tender, ironic, but also incredibly moving.
