Program Preview March / April 2024
(March 1 to May 1, 2024)
March 1 to April 26, 2024The documentary form of the long-term observation has a very special relationship to the course of life and its processes. This is what differentiates it, for instance, from biographical narratives and audiovisual chronicles that summarize – firmly anchored in the present. At the same time, when we spend a few hours with fragments of filmic time recorded over a span of decades, we become witnesses to how children grow up fast and how adults grow old and lose time, while ourselves gaining time for the question: What is life?
March 3 to May 1, 2024To complement our retrospective of the work of Michael Glawogger, we present a Collection on Screen whose films celebrate his close relationship to the Film Museum. The selection is intentionally surprising and agile, like Michael Glawogger's own thinking.
March 7 and 8, 2024The film program Despite: Breathing, Constellating, Gathering curated by Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński, traces movements of air and breath in the works of contemporary filmmakers from the African diaspora, addressing the wastelands created by slavery, colonialism, and imperialism, which nevertheless provide fertile ground for the radical examination of Black life.
March 13, 2024After the screening of Lebenslinien III – Elisabeth. Die Erde versinkt (1983, Käthe Kratz), Katharina Wöppermann and Wilbirg Brainin-Donnenberg will talk with Angela Hareiter, who is an important pioneer of production design in Austrian cinema.
March 14, 2024On the afternoon and evening of March 14th, you can get a picture of the diversity of our collection, our curatorial work, and our research projects in 2024: entrance is free for thirty-minute presentations, film programs, lectures, and readings providing insights into our activities.
March 21 to April 29, 2024To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Michael Glawogger's death, we are presenting a comprehensive retrospective of his work as a cinematographer, author, and director who dared to tackle almost every conceivable genre and format. In order to provide a deeper insight into his unique oeuvre, we are inviting numerous well-known companions and colleagues as part of the retrospective.
