Innovative Films Made in Austria – Exploring Terra Incognita

One might think that it takes the effects of a pandemic to see with all clarity how indispensable the arts and culture are for our society. The performing and visual arts – including film as an artistic medium – are an integral part of our lives. The projects, events and institutions associated with these art forms also represent an important economic factor. Recent months have clearly shown how rapidly and easily our everyday life – both work and leisure – can be derailed, and our customary social fabric thrown off balance when arts and cultural events cannot be attended and experienced collectively. The fact that filmmakers have reacted to the Covid-related restrictions in their own way is encouraging – and at the same time not surprising. For film and video artists, it is a daily practice and challenge to enter terra incognita in terms of both content and form. They take on changed perspectives, sense the unex­pected and integrate things that are irritating and sometimes disturbing into their artistic work. Their approach and their works of art invite us to rediscover our everyday lives. Film and video create images that may never have been seen before. They are capable of rearranging the familiar in order to provide new insights or tell new stories, provoking a possible change of perspective. The resulting, specific artistic strategies and approaches to that which is not expected offer the audience a wide range of opportunities to research, rethink and reassess our changed living and working conditions. Film and video can provide orientation in a time of increasing digitization of our society, a process that has only gained momentum due to the pandemic. For many years, innovative Austrian films have been very successful worldwide with their incomparable visual signature. This is a fact that makes me extremely proud.

Introduction


With this in mind, this Innovative Film catalog introduces the audience to a broad selection of new works created in the past year with the support of the Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport. The 15th edition of the catalog serves as an ambassador for innovative film-making across national borders in both analog and digital forms, actively contributing to its international visibility and dissemination. I wish you an informative and inspiring read and many extraordinary terra incognita adventures at the cinema – the undisputed linchpin of film art.

With best wishes

Introduction


Sources of Wonder Jurij Meden

From the perspective of an artist, the entire history of art is, to a significant extent, a history of the organized support of the arts. From the perspective of the consumer of art, the entire history of art is, to a significant extent, a history of wonder. This wonder is of a kind only art can provide – it cannot be found, for example, in religion, food or sex. Innovative Film Austria stands at the threshold of an ancient cultural tradition: It generously caters both to the adventurous artist hungering to experiment with audiovisual media, as well as the adventurous viewer, hungry for wonder of a kind s/he hasn’t experienced before. After he had relocated from Rome to Milan in 384, Saint Augustine encountered Bishop Ambrose, a wise man responsible for Augustine’s eventual embrace of Christianity. In Confessions, Augustine remembers observing a peculiarly wondrous trait displayed by his beloved and respected mentor: “I could not ask him questions I wished to ask, in the manner I wished to ask them, because so many people kept him busy with their problems that I was prevented from talking to him face to face. When he was not with them, which was never a very long time, he was reviving his body with the food it required or refreshing his mind with reading. When he read, his eyes scanned the page and his heart explored the meaning, but his voice was silent and his tongue was still. All could approach him freely and it was not unusual for visitors to be announced. So often, when we came to see him, we found him reading like this in silence – as he never read aloud. We would sit there quietly, for no one had the heart to disturb him when he was so engrossed in study. After a time we went away again, guessing that in the short while he was free from the turmoil of other men’s affairs and able to refresh his own mind, he would not wish to be distracted.” Augustine met Ambrose well over 1,000 years before the European invention of printing technology, in 1450 AC. Despite the fact that children today continue to learn to read by reading aloud, it is still easy to forget – or, better yet, hard to imagine – that an act as simple as reading in silence wasn’t always as “natural” as we perceive it to be today. Back when books were a rare commodity and the ability to read a rare privilege, most people equated the technology of reading with vocalizing. Ambrose reading with a “silent voice” and “still tongue” was a source of profound wonder – even for an intellectual like Augustine who was already a teacher himself back when he first met Ambrose.


Roughly 1,500 years after Augustine’s encounter, Chris Marker stirringly portrayed Soviet master filmmaker Aleksandr Medvedkin in The Last Bolshevik and reported how the young Medvedkin joyously cried upon first discovering how placing two images together could produce a third meaning. Medvedkin shed his tears of wonder at approximately the same moment in history when people all over the world started escaping into the darkness of movie palaces en masse – millions cried in front of the silver screen and continue to do so to this day. Perhaps the technology of exhibiting moving images on big public screens never really drove any Parisians to leave the theater in fear of being run over by the train arriving at La Ciotat station (by now cinema’s “founding myth” has been entirely debunked). But the cinema did serve and still serves as a constant source of wonder – a source of tears and laughter. Hours spent in the darkness of a movie theater are hours of wonder, while occasionally punctured by an interval of tedium. Thanks to Jean-Luc Godard’s iconic close-up of Anna Karina, and Abbas Kiarostami’s close-up of Juliette Binoche, it is easy to picture the face of a viewer glistening with tears in the darkened movie theater, illuminated only by the soft light reflecting off the silver screen. Now imagine the same face perusing moving images outside the sanctuary of cinema – in front of YouTube. Instead of a shadowy and sublime image of stillness and wonder, it is easy to picture the harshly lit face of someone picking their nose, masturbating, or nervously skipping through hundreds of streams: hours of tedium, occasionally punctured by an interval of wonder. “Anyone who has wasted hours surfing the Internet knows that technology can encourage bad habits,” Ted Chiang laconically remarked in his 2013 story The Truth of Fact, the Truth of Feeling. But on the same page, he conceded that the true benefits of (any) new technologies have yet to be discovered. We can be certain of one thing: Having experienced two different technological standards only seems to provide an ideal perspective for evaluation and comparison. It doesn’t. I am not an authority on the subject compared to someone born into the age of new technological standards simply because I experienced the widespread migration from analog to digital cinema and the subsequent widespread migration from cinema viewing to home streaming.

Introduction


The true benefits of new technologies will only be discovered by generations that are unbiased and less judgmental, namely people who are perhaps already completely – and inevitably – transformed by these same new technologies. We are standing at the edge of a precipice shifting before our very eyes, accelerated both by predictable factors such as commercial interests, as well as seemingly unpredictable events, such as viral pandemics. There is only one thing that remains certain: Whatever transformation or wonder lies beyond our horizon, it only can and hopefully will be facilitated by the persistence of progressive forces, such as Innovative Film.

Jurij Meden (b. 1977) is a Slovenian film scholar, writer, programmer and award-winning experimental filmmaker currently working as curator and head of the film program at the Austrian Film Museum in Vienna, while also serving as co-director of the Nitrate Picture Show and editor-in-chief of KINO! (www.e-kino.si). Meden previously worked as a curator at the George Eastman House and the Slovenian Cinematheque, and as adjunct professor of experimental film and video art at University of Nova Gorica School of Arts Department. In addition to his curatorial and filmmaking activities, Meden has written and co-written more than 250 publications on cinema. Revised in English by Eve Heller

to listen and to watch. Her finely woven dramaturgy creates living worlds inhabited by protagonists who teach us: Everything is a matter of attitude. Kaaserer stages scenes in front of the camera with empathy, intelligence and a multi-facetted sensibility. In so doing, she has developed a style that combines documentary modes with a visual vocabulary familiar to us from fiction. The result is nothing less than: especially worth seeing!

Awards


The jury distinguishes Hannes Böck for outstanding achievement as cinematographer, film and image processor in the field of innovative film. Over the course of many years, his precise visual composition and editing work has contributed to the success of innumerable Austrian productions created by a wide array of artists including Antoinette Zwirchmayr, Constanze Ruhm, Dorit Margreiter and Florian Pumhösl. It is impossible to imagine the field of innovative film without Hannes Böck, and likewise, his sensitive way of understanding the most various of artistic processes. His consistently static images appear electrified. It is as if he breathes life into the surfaces, architecture and landscapes he films, capturing images that exhale an extraordinary calm and clarity that we encounter onscreen. Similarly, his montage work captivates by virtue of a slowness that instinctively finds the right rhythm, abstract images often seeming to communicate with one another as if engaged in a natural dialog.

Martina Kudláček Born in 1965, Martina Kudláček lives in Vienna, working on film, video, photo­ graphy, and artistic research projects as well as archival projects. She received her MFA in Cinematography and Documentary Film Directing from the Film and TV Academy FAMU in Prague, Czech Republic. 1997–1998 Kudláček did a fellowship at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne. 2017 she obtained a PhD from the Department for Theater, Film and Media Studies at the University of Vienna. Kudláček serves as screenplay writer, director, and often producer and camera person on her award-winning films, widely screened at international festivals, cinematheques, museums and universities. Her work focuses on biographies and the history of avant-garde film. Titles such as In the Mirror of Maya Deren (2001), Notes on Marie Menken (2005) and Fragments of Kubelka (2012) have become standard works integral to the teaching of film history. Between 2007 and 2012, Kudláček taught at FAMU in Prague and lectured internationally. In 2004, she was distinguished with the “Film Preservation Award” by Anthology Film Archives in New York, having worked on several projects with its director, Jonas Mekas. Additionally, Kudláček took part in archival projects for the Austrian Film Museum in Vienna, the Národní filmový archiv in Prague, the Theater Research Collection Schloss Wahn in Cologne, the Helnwein Archive, the Len Lye Foundation of New Zealand, as well as private collections. Her curatorial projects include important exhibitions at Fotogalerie Wien, as a founding member of the Collective, and since 2015 she has taken part in curatorial collaborations at the Jacobs Museum in Zürich, as well as curating the Maya Deren Exhibition in 2018 at documenta 14 in Kassel, Germany. Kudláček is currently working on a film about Austrian avant-garde filmmaker Kurt Kren and heading a project in collaboration with Anthology Film Archives to restore the Haitian film footage of filmmaker Maya Deren.

A wonderful aspect of her contribution includes unsung work behind the scenes. Kudláček’s painstaking research has rescued filmic gems on the brink of turning to dust, including information and moments of beauty that shed a nuanced light on her subject, art history and world culture. She has recorded countless hours of interviews for posterity with renowned scholars, filmmakers and other individuals contemporary to her subjects – many no longer with us – creating a treasure trove of primary source material for future archives. In a day and age of funding increasingly driven by ignorance and short-sighted profit, Kudláček’s aesthetically crafted and highly informative documentary portraits communicate an understanding that will speak to future generations for ages to come, here in Austria and the rest of the world.

“Keep your eyes on the road, your hands on the wheel.” Martha and Alex should have taken Jim Morrison’s advice to heart. But during their drive through an idyllic landscape, they are primarily occupied with themselves. Only when real life comes crashing into their small self-involved world in the shape of a little dog and its grim owner, things start really happening – more than they could have asked for.

Much of what drives our world becomes paradigmatic in Davos: Farmers work as they did centuries ago, in contrast to a global elite that operates without being tied to a particular place – virtually without touching the ground.

The film refers to the Italian underground movie Anna (Grifi/Sarchielli), which documents a few months in the life of the homeless and pregnant girl Anna. The directors who she meets in Piazza Navona in the Spring of 1972 offer her help. In exchange they make Anna the main character of a film project which oscillates between documentation and (re-)staging, empathy and exploitation. Gli appunti di Anna Azzori is based on Anna’s “fictitious notes” and is conceived as a feminist reply to Grifi’s and Sarchielli’s production.

There is a small town in Austria called Pinkafeld that gained adverse publicity as a “Nazi village” during the presidential election of 2016, when a majority of its citizens voted for their famous neighbor, the right-wing candidate Norbert Hofer. What do people really think in regard to their homeland, refugees and populism? The Most Beautiful Place on Earth shows a society in transition, a microcosm reflecting Europe’s zeitgeist.

Sigmund Freud developed psychoanalysis in turn-of-thecentury Vienna, where he continued to practise until 1938, when he was forced into exile and escaped to London. An intimate portrait – told from the perspective of his daughter Anna and based on Freud’s corres­ pondence and writings – A Jew Without God is also a questioning of “home” and “Jewish identity.” Previously unpublished archival footage presents one of the most influential figures in the 20th century not only as a keen thinker, but also as a private person in many facets.

“What the hell happened to my country?” After Donald Trump’s election, this is a burning question to the American filmmaker who’s lived most her life in Austria. With the critical distance of a European and an insider’s eye, she gets close to some Trump voters in Ohio: a microcosm of a deeply divided USA. Following the golden rule “don’t argue, listen ...,” the documentary explores polarization and why people stick to their political opinions – no matter what. So the film is a plea for an objective, yet courageous debate.

Am Gang Claudia Dermutz

Children’s Film Amina Handke

Am Gang is a film about the communal stairs and hallways of an apartment building. Or rather, about its inhabitants. It shows what a silent onlooker in the hallways of a house might notice about the life of the building’s residents. Moments of the tenants’ lives are captured (in image and in sound) that are felt in the peripheral space of the hallways and make up its character. Scraps of thought, associations, interpretations and expanding on them – that is the focus of the film.

The story of the first three or four years in a child’s life and its key moments, told from a child’s perspective. A central aspect of early childhood, nonverbal communication and its gradual broadening into language, is conveyed by filmic means, by accompanying a child and its development, its interaction with its environment. We experience the child’s first utterances, moods, emotions and needs. Long-term observation reveals some special features of this period of life.

Fahren Veronika Barnaš

Was eine Familie leisten kann Sybille Bauer

Riding follows the production and operation of the temporary spectacle that is the fair over the course of one season in presentday Austria. It provides insight into the mechanisms of the fairground – the rides and their mechanical aesthetics, and the travelling showpeople’s work in front of and behind the scenes of the fair. Movements of the showpeople, their rides, and the visitors constitute the film’s central theme.

A seemingly happy family crumbles under the weight of keeping up appearances: The mother – a young, attractive, social climber – is overburdened. The father – eloquent, a good provider and soulmate – withdraws into himself when he is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The child – author and director of the film – starts to exhibit “problematic” behavior early on. She is the one in the family who exhibits symptoms of the family’s dysfunction. The memories about this girl tell of emotional abuse and childhood isolation while looking toward an unwritten future.

All the Stops Josef Dabernig

This aesthetically and substantively bleak experimental film plays host to a cast of masked actors in strictly window-less interiors. The nightmarish story establishes an uncanny and threatening atmosphere. The film borrows upon various surrealist avant-garde films, as well as classical science fiction and horror movies.

Mansion – church – hairdressers, mansion – church – bar, mansion – church – cemetery. In the rhythm of household chores and social engagements, a musician works her way, conducting a handful of helpers like her own little chamber orchestra.

Filmkorrespondenz Manfred Schwaba Antoinette Zwirchmayr

Pomp Katrina Daschner

From the spring of 2018 to the spring of 2019, Austrian filmmakers Manfred Schwaba and Antoinette Zwirchmayr – who up to this point had maintained a faithful, intense “letter friendship” – switched to an unusual, artistic and intense method of communication. Their letters adopted the form of short analog films, shot on silent 16 mm, edited mostly “in camera,” to be (hand-)developed by the receiver rather than by the sender. (Neil Young)

Pomp is the eighth part of a series based on Arthur Schnitzler’s Traumnovelle. Circular choreography, the dome of the sound stage in Düsseldorf, a heavenly ceiling resembling the firmament and universe: The pompous circular choreography mixes with heavenly projections. Finger dances in gold satin gloves, brimming carafes of champagne in pyramidal cones, performers in catsuits who emerge from the same colored background. Everything turns. Pure pomp.

A proposal to project in Scope Viktoria Schmid

Tovo Thomas Steiner

In a cinema the screen needs to become invisible in order to serve as a window to the world. In Viktoria Schmid’s series A proposal to project, the screen is allowed to fulfill a different purpose. It is the main protagonist. The screen in Scope-format is set up at the Curonian Split’s seashore, in Lithuania, in a landscape corresponding with the qualities of the screen’s wide-screen-format. The film shows the screen for the duration of one day: The sun and trees perform a subtle interplay of light and shadow while the sea and wind create the surround sound of the 35 mm film.

Tovo is an animated film which makes experimental use of analog and digital technologies, going beyond the usual constricts of the genre. A hiking path is repeatedly followed, and interventions in the form of drawings are imposed on certain landmarks. Abstract images come into being with the help of recapitulation and superimposition. The film formulates visual concepts and invites us to take part in this thinking process.

We have more than beds to dream in Bernd Oppl

Where Is Lotte? Petra Zöpnek

The setting for this film is provided by a model of a waiting room, resembling what one might encounter in an airport. A black cloud begins to spread out in the waiting room. It is ink that mixes in with the model in the water. The chaotic process of its diffusion meets with the organized structure of the waiting room, gradually dissolving it entirely.

Homage to Lotte Hass (1928–2015), the “first lady of diving.” This experimental film is a memorial leap. Underwater models stand in for Lotte, or rather: They jump in for her. They jump into the Old Danube and go searching, in a state of floating, before they rise again, transformated, in the Red Sea. Their body parts and limbs flicker, become blurred. The movements of all the divers, of water, air and mysterious plants turn into a collective action.

All that he can find of the unknown man is an old suitcase with an id card, an audiotape machine and the recordings of his diary. As if under the spell of a daydream, the homeless man starts to take on the identity of his doppelganger: The homeless man dreams himself up. He dreams of the wife he has lost, he watches her together with her new lover. He dreams of old business trips and his past life.

On the night of May 2, 1945, five days before the end of World War II, 228 Hungarian Jews were murdered in the small Lower Austrian community of Hofamt Priel by perpetrators unnamed to this day. Witnesses recognized local helpers, but the murderers were never found, nor was there a trial. The massacre is one of the last so-called “Endphase Crimes,” and maybe the last that we know so little about.

The short film it works released in 1998 documented four handicapped children as they went about their everyday work routines. 20 years later, these children have grown into wonderful 30-year-old men and women who now stand in the prime of their lives. This film finds a personal and filmic intimacy much like its precursor, while questioning how socially normative concepts determine who is or is not considered handicapped nowadays.

Just Be There, the first part of the “dance rehearsal documentary film-project” takes place in the Vienna State Opera: Manuel Legris, the director of the Vienna State Ballet is the dancer in a new choreography of Patrick de Bana with Nina Polakova, a first soloist of the company. The focus lies on the creative process between the choreographer and the dancers. Sometimes philosophical, sometimes a confrontation with practical problems of movements – rehearsals are always a breathtaking work. The film ends with the last rehearsal on stage for the Nurejew Gala 2019. No interviews, no commentary and probably no subtitles – the body language says enough.

A filmmaker is shooting a fictional film with his team in the village of his forefathers near the RussianUkrainian border. He attempts to make a movie that is “fresh and clean-cut in terms of methods and aesthetic tricks,” however he encounters hurdles in the real world, influencing the lives of the village people, and the truth becomes mingled with lies. As a consequence, the author has to disappear from the artwork. A new fiction begins, where causality and predictability are exclusive cases. Legends are legitimized and fictional film becomes documentary. The village has transformed itself into a stage.

Markus is a sound engineer at a small theater in Carinthia. He has moved into his aunt’s holiday cottage in order to write a play. With exacting powers of observation and linguistic prowess, he creates a revealing drama involving the people around him. Markus’ friends find him in a disheveled and unkempt state, which seriously worries them. As they recognize the parallels between themselves and the characters in Markus’ play, they begin ruthlessly taking account.

60-year-old Maja moves into a shared flat with others. In the flat, she becomes acquainted with her flat-mate Valentin, a student in his late 20ies, who hasn’t yet learned to make his own way in life.

Reisen Maximilian Fürst

Out of the blue, 77- year-old “I” loses her language. She reacts with different stra­ tegies of assimilation or resistance to ­attempts to make her function or to tran­ quilize her. It becomes evident that she, just like the world around her, is caught in language regulations and commonplaces. Accordingly vague and ambiguous is the rea­lity around “I”: Could everything be staged?

Travels depicts a day in the life of four people whose paths have or will cross. In fragments, we observe the protagonists, as they attempt to give their lives new direction. The four short episodes show how we all experiment in our own ways with relationships, livelihoods, our emotions as well as those of others, actions and reactions and how these decisions create and influence our behavior and social fabric.

The film presents an episode from Hanna’s life. She is in a relationship with a man who suffers from intense compulsive disorders. The short story of What You Feel Is Fear in­tends to convey how psychological disabilities impact family. A special feature of the film’s production strategy lies in the fact that the actors do not receive a copy of the screenplay. However, the written script does include a basic story, narrative density and tempo which the film endeavors to sustain.

Europe, Can You See Me? Katharina Simunic

“With the intensity of a dream, to pass through what has been, in order to experience the present as the waking world to which the dream refers!” (Walter Benjamin, Paris Arcades, 1927–1929)

The closure of the so-called Balkan Route has resulted in unthinkable suffering over the years. Bosnia-Herzegovina is a focal point of this humanitarian catastrophe.

Fify Ibrahim hört auf! Fify Ibrahim hört auf? Gabriele Mathes

Frauenfragmente: Gini und Resi Sophie Gmeiner

A documentary film about a small shop expected to soon go bankrupt in a public housing project on the western outskirts of Vienna. Fify Ibrahim manages a grocery store for “the little people,” the inhabitants of the housing project. Why shouldn’t this shop shut down like its two predecessors that were located here? Do my neighbors understand what they will be losing if Fify Ibrahim really closes the store down?

After Resi (59) was able to lead her life largely autonomously despite her mental disability, she has been living in the local retirement home in her hometown of Kössen, Tyrol for a few years now. The unconventional Gini (61) is Resi’s sister and guardian, but also her closest ally from the family. Their indestructible humor holds the two sisters together, even though in Resi’s life there would have been every reason to lose heart. In March 2020 Resi died of corona disease.

HLS/Hasenleiten Stories Lotte Schreiber

A Pile of Ghosts Ella Raidel

HSL/Hasenleiten Stories portrays a resi­den­ tial housing settlement located on the southeastern outskirts of Vienna, an area known as Hasenleiten. Miniature plot lines are developed with the assistance of child­ ren and adolescents on site and interweave with documentary observations of the settle­ment, which was constructed between 1937 and 1951. The filmic narrative con­ tinually oscillates between the past and the present while focusing on the children and the supervisors of the local youth center.

A Chinese ghost town. The last hotel, which has been condemned for demolition like the rest of the town, is still standing. The owner Charles imagines himself in the scene of a Hollywood classic. The vexing interplay of documentary and fiction, in which construction workers, investors and real estate agents appear, takes place in contemporary China, where cities are built entirely on speculation, dictated by the fictions of capitalism.

Sanatorium Druzhba Harald Hund

Those Next to Us Bernhard Hetzenauer

Sanitorium Druzhba is a documentary that uses a Soviet-era building as a starting point to delve into the current situation in Crimea after its annexation by Russia. The building serves as a symbol alluding to the broken relationship between Russia and Ukraine. Its utopian modernist architectural style is employed as a metaphor for a seemingly utopian alliance between the two countries nowadays. Occasionally generating an assessment divergent from that of Western media, the film examines the currently defunct rapport between the two nations.

In breathtaking words, Germán López Rosales describes his experience of a human smuggling operation from the Mexican-American border to San Antonio, Texas. Locked up inside the cargo area of a tractor-trailer, ten of the 39 migrants died due to heat and lack of water. Cinematic images of vast, idyllic landscapes shot in the border area of T­ amaulipas/Texas accompany Germán’s narration and create a strong contrast to his intimate portrayals.

Verwandlung Simon Spitzer

Wind Martin Putz

The essay film Metamorphosis gives us an ambient impression of the nightlife in a city disco. The guests provide the focus for documen­tary observations and the resulting investi­gation of a subculture, as well as the exploration of a discotheque’s performative stage. The film is mostly without spoken dia­ log and has an ambient sound design, in part.

Wind itself is inaudible. All we hear is the sound emanating from its encounter with obstacles. Wind is invisible, what we see are its effects, what we perceive we intimate. The wind itself remains a phantom, like the cinematic principle of picture and sound, creating sensations in our minds. The story of wind will be told through people who encounter and work with this phantom element in various ways. The film contrasts their intentions and tells about the primordial human effort to direct nature.

Der antifaschistische Zoo Meinhard Rauchensteiner

Auf dem Grund des Wäschekorbes Adele Razkövi

After 1945, predominantly apolitical sculptures were initially erected in Vienna’s public housing projects– mainly animals. The film shows 17 of these sculptures, combined with monologs, dialogs, poems and songs. A final montage sequence shows the “Children of Vienna,” accompanied by André Heller’s song of the same name, as kids climb around on so-called play sculptures.

At the Bottom of the Laundry Basket shows the state of the emotional dilemma that the protagonist finds herself in, as an artist and mother caught between domestic routines and creative artistic processes. A comparison and fusion of the structures, in which she finds herself in daily life: the monotone repetition of the same routines versus total concentration on her current activity in the creative flow.

Erinnerungsrauschen Eginhartz Kanter

In the perfect picture of a dreamy landscape and well-known architecture, noise fields break through the idyllic surroundings. The special soundscape of the island is created by the prohibition of any kind of vehicle. For the transport of all goods, “carrying guys,” independent workers with special carts, are employed. By means of experimental camera work, field recording and contemporary ­Chinese poetry, the tension between historical world cultural heritage, tourism, work and life is negotiated.

The Rush of Memory deals with personal reminiscence and the associated topic of false memories. The thematic starting point for this experimental essay film is the former GDR and the aftermath of this state. Shot on expired 16 mm film, the coarsegrained black-and-white images give rise to an imagery in which various temporalities – today and yesterday – seem to mix.

From Endlessness to Infinity Karl-Heinz Klopf

EXT. follows the experience of a figure trying to draw a line between an imagined reality and her actual reality – her attempt to transcend a dark, fluid internal world by projecting herself into various scenarios in an imagined, material external world.

An experimental reflection on a piece of furniture entitled “Nesting Table,” designed in 1935 by the Austrian/American artist, architect and visionary, Friedrich Kiesler: The film investigates the object, space, architecture and filmic perception within a kaleidoscopic universe. Computer animation coupled with live action footage transforms the historical context of Kiesler’s piece of furniture, lifting it into the present day.

Geschichten eines Jungen, einer Frau und eines Soldaten Franziska Pflaum

Heat Peter Kutin Florian Kindlinger

Stories of a Boy, a Woman and a Soldier: We travel back in time and dive into their memories. Individual scenes come together to form a story that increasingly interweaves the fates of all three protagonists: When Reza’s parents are killed in a bomb explosion, he decides to leave Afghanistan and go to Germany. German soldier Matthias is no longer able to cope in his homeland after being deployed to Afghanistan. Stefanie, a caretaker in Berlin, cannot comprehend, why her son became a soldier.

Through the unorthodox use of modern image and sound recording technology, Heat enables an unusual view behind the facades of a classical orchestra. From the recorded material, which is created in close cooperation with the musicians, the artist duo composed and arranged an abstract short film, which makes the unknowns within the “machine” tangible. By means of a thermal imaging camera it is possible to visualize minimal temperature fluctuations and to record residual heat.

Interweaving Krisztina Kerekes

Nachts im Bach Gudrun Krebitz

Interweaving is an experimental dance film constituted by uncut long takes intended to convey a concept of interconnectivity, embodying how the inner and outer worlds of human beings are reciprocally determined. Over the course of this little exploratory journey, several dancing couples tap their repertoire of movements to engage in a dialog of unexpected body language that they unfold in natural as well as urban spaces. A dance of relational dynamics based on openness and vulnerability.

It’s nighttime. Arda is sitting in the river, accompanied by orchestral music. She seems to be talking to herself: “Gentlemen – as per usual I’ve ended up in a situation I don’t understand or know anything about. However, I won’t lead on how clueless I am. I’m always operating in the dark, things tend to turn out beautifully this way.” Out of this darkness two moons come racing towards her and I will tell you a secret: These moons are your eyes.

Never Meant to Be Seen Elke Groen

nichts Timotheus Tomicek

Never Meant to Be Seen is a film about the nameless beauties of 35 mm films. Their brief appearances at the start of each film reel may have given them the hope that this could be the start of a movie career but are actually used for laboratory density tests. The so called “China girls” or “girl heads,” being looped, can wink, laugh and start to talk with women’s dialogs from movies of their period. The initial small talk leads into a discussion what the idea of lascivious posing for a material test is about.

The film nothing is a parable about laziness, serenity, inactivity, passivity, lethargy, comfort, indifference, listlessness, inaction, apathy, detachment, sluggishness. By means of a convoluted narrative structure, the complex theme staged in the context of our zeitgeist is worked into a filmic allegory (simile).

Out of Sight Eve Heller

The film documents a reservoir and its surroundings over the course of a single year: A static mounted camera records 24 hours for 365 days without interruption. Exposure times initially last only a few seconds per image, but their duration steadily increases. At first the sun moves across the sky very slowly, but soon it quickens. By the end of the film the sun appears as a long luminous band of light.

The Währinger Friedhof in Vienna is a forgotten Jewish cemetery marked by gravestones eroding behind a high stone wall. The lives of people interred and their offspring overlap with the rise of photochemical imaging, analog photography and film. Out of Sight is a cine­ matic song of remembrance and an elegy to fading histories woven out of imagery as technologically disparate as pin-hole photos, glass negatives and CinemaScopic film footage.

re–GEO/ristrutturare qualcosa Michaela Schwentner

A personal Super-8 and Super-16 mm reflection about the filmmakers 13+ year long friendship with the designer of the Viennese minimalist clothing label PUR. Sometimes rough, sometimes ambivalent, always in admiration for the craft and its philosophy. The designer herself prefers to stay absent from the screen. An examination of a conceptual obsession.

re–GEO/ristrutturare qualcosa is a poetic approach to the Swiss germanist and sculptor Georgette Klein (1893–1963), about the (re)construction of her house in the form of a sketch, her artistic work and her contradictory personality, with an eye to her numerous diary entries and letters.

Straight vs. Curved Johannes Schiehsl

Talszenen Annja Krautgasser

What initially begins as a purely geometrical visual argument grows into a bitter struggle between sense and sensuousness. By means of wild metamorphoses, Curved attempts to break through Straight. At the height of the argument, it becomes clear the battle is in fact the inner conflict plaguing our protagonist Straight, who in the end must decide if he prefers to sink into an ocean of sensuousness or ossify in the boredom of sense.

The film Valley Scenes concerns the mythology and mysticism of Paganism. The here and now becomes interwoven with the fear of the unforeseeable – and also with the ephemeral. The film is based on a Rhaetian song that is a significant literary historical document from Medieval times. To this very day, it holds a mirror to our own societal imbalances of power and gender inequalities.

It has been over the course of several decades that Europeans, above all the former colonial power Italy – have been dumping illegal toxic garbage in the ocean at the Horn of Africa, allegedly in exchange for arms shipments to local warring parties. Since the 2004 earthquake and subsequent tsunami devastated the region, the Somali coastal area is contaminated. The film tells this story elliptically, near wordlessly, finding precise and highly sensitive images to register this chronic violence – in gazes, gestures, landscapes.

Werner has been working 20 years as a sales person for the Mandl printing company and feels he is not adequately challenged. The past few months he has been attending a course on team-building and mediation where he believes he has discovered his calling. At the Mandl company he now sees unresolved conflicts and inefficient team-work everywhere he looks. He convinces his boss Alice to allow him to organize a collective team-building weekend. Creating more conflicts than it solves, the weekend culminates in a struggle for survival.

About the first last summer.

Charlotte (10), who is under great pressure to perform, feels left alone by absent parents who confine her in the corset of a precisely planned everyday life. When the kakapo, an owl parrot that has been declared extinct, unexpectedly enters her life, she discovers her courage and learns to enjoy life with fun. Aroused by this special friendship, Charlotte not only turns her life upside down, but also helps her friend to find his home. This throws the everyday life of her stressed parents completely off track and ultimately turns the whole city upside down.

Zwischen Bildern Franzis Kabisch Experimental Documentary

The documentary film project Between ­Images concerns how abortion is represented in movies and TV shows, from silent films of the 1920ies through Hollywood classics like Dirty Dancing, to the long-running German soap opera Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten, first broadcast in 1992. The film portrays women who themselves have had abortions and shows them together watching, questioning and commenting on found footage scenes presenting stereotypes, clichés as well as empowering moments. Between Images ­follows a non-linear narrative about abortion, representation, and the power of images.

The ongoing availability of new tech­ nologies allows for and encourages new approaches to the moving ­image across space and time, and it results in highly innovative formats that ­examine and expand the notion of n­ arration as well as challenge a critical inventory of the latter. It is for this reason that in 2011 the Film Department of the Division for Arts and Culture initiated an annual funding program for New Film Formats, entitled Pixel, Bytes & Film. This program supports a selection of experimental audio-visual projects dealing with digital media and related image production, and exploring the boundaries of film and audio-visual art.

Since 2015, the initiative has been work­ing in cooperation with Austrian public broadcasting TV channel ORF III, to make the program artworks accessible to a broader audience while also providing participating artists exclusive access to technical infrastructure and archives of ORF III. Additional cooperating partners in this year’s edition of the program include stakeholders and start-up’s in Austria’s XR scene, such as sound:frame, Junge Römer – Creative Production Studio, XR Vienna, and arx anima, further promoting and deepening the exchange of knowledge and skills between the arts and creative industry. Meanwhile, go-international – a funding source to provide Austrian support for entering global markets, offered by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKÖ) – has contributed to help make the program visible internationally. In October 2019, the following nine projects were selected for funding.

Pixel, Bytes & Film


Brut & Parasit Ganaël Dumreicher, Carla Veltman, Martin Eichler

Civil Dusk David Uzochukwu

Documentary Fiction

Experimental Documentary

The bark beetle kills trees. Its massive proliferation is a consequence of the man-made climate catastrophe and monoculture as opposed to nature. Trekking a landscape impacted by change, we follow the beetle through the ongoing process of destruction till the insect arrives at the door of our own habitat. Scenarios are constructed employing 3D laser scans of real locations and constructed atmospheres; the bark beetle symbolizes our potential future as it enters our own homes.

Civil dusk: evening twilight. The film introduces a civil era in Uzochukwu’s relationship with his father, reconsidering post-colonial notions of (be)longing. A homesick Igbo father turns to sand amidst his European family, as he raises a house in his Nigerian family village from afar. He thereby follows a tradition rooted in the Biafran War. What ground is solid enough to build on?

The Entropy Gardens Leonhard Lass Gregor Ladenhauf

HYPERmnesia

Virtual Reality Experience

Avant-Garde Fiction

The Entropy Gardens by DEPART (= Lass/ Ladenhauf) is a unique VR experience that puts visitors inside a constantly changing horticultural environment. Investigating one of the most archetypical artforms, it challenges its myths, aesthetics and modes of perception by combining poetry and generative coding to construct a spellbinding and surreal utopian place. Formally it consists of an audiovisual 3D environment that combines “realistic” natural elements with abstract, computational forms. It is populated by structures that resemble plants, organic and anorganic matter and evolve through interactions with their environment.

HYPERmnesia is the dissection of the screen

surface.This is not text but pixels behind glass. This is where HYPERmnesia begins: a sensual exploration of a world in which memory, landscape and their pictorial medialization collapse. A hike, a scanning of a forest surface, a high-resolution recording of the past and its threads, pipes and pipelines into the future. The further one moves through the thicket, the stronger the suspicion grows that one is only moving on a screen.

Infra-Ordinary Palm Trees Marlies Pöschl

Make You Need Me Samuel Traber

360° VR Film

360° VR Music Video

Infra-Ordinary Palm Trees is a virtual reality project about the outsourcing of old age. It is a displaced “Heimatroman” or homeland novel about a village that looks like every other Swiss village. On the one hand, the film shows everyday life in a nursing home for European seniors in Thailand, on the other hand it shares the inhabitants’ memories of their home in Europe. The project combines documentary scenes with staged sequences to allow temporal layers to coexist side by side.

In a scary utopia we follow electronic trash on its way to a gigantic space dump. We are in a rocket transporting old TVs, mobiles, computers and toys. In zero gravity the broken screens start to flicker, play the song and seem like an A.I. singing to you. “I can make you want me, but I can’t make you need me...” The rocket opens and all the trash floats in an orbit of waste cycling the earth.

Mukbang Susanna Flock

The Soul at Work Ursula Mayer

Avant-Garde Short

Documentary Fiction

Boiled eggs, omelette, sunny-side up eggs, poached eggs, egg-in-a-glass, scrambled eggs, custard royale, beaten egg-whites: While protagonists in an eating show (aka Mukbang) consume dishes made solely of eggs, the film touches on the ambivalence of the world – a world increasingly interconnected via new technologies and pressed ever closer together, yet characterized by a growing loneliness.

Speculative scenarios of the future are gener­ated through an interplay between shots of transwoman Valentijn de Hingh and the production of her digital double. The “cyborg” serves as a point of departure for initiating discussions about post-human embodiment and new technologies. The avatar here stands in as a generative metaphor for the development of feminist discourse within technological contexts.
