VISIONary: Contemporary Short Documentaries and Experimental Films from Austria (DVD)


by various artists

- +

This compilation offers an opportunity for a substantial view of Austrian experimental and documentary film's varied status quo. The works on this DVD range from subjective to rigidly structural documentary approaches, from abstract music videos and conceptual architectural studies to elaborate computer animations. The amount of formal innovation manifest in all these films and videos is outstanding.

"A number of the works have enjoyed success at international festivals, in this way helping to ensure that Austrian film culture's innovativeness is not exhausted through tunnel vision, that it remains open to visionary ideas." - Bert Rebhandl, Der Standard
