Program September | October 2017
August 30 to October 11, 2017He projected something that reached far beyond the cinematic fictions he served. When he passed away, several obituaries declared him the greatest actor of classical Hollywood cinema. But his talent in this field does not explain the special impact he still has on the American imaginary. Even his reputation as the social "conscience of the nation" is only one side of the story.
October 5, 2017The Film Museum had planned Isabelle Huppert's visit around the artistic partnership with Michael Haneke that has been going on for 16 years. Regrettably, Isabelle Huppert's current shooting schedule underwent significant changes and she was forced to cancel her trip. To our great joy, Michael Haneke has agreed to fill the "vacant spot".
September 22 to October 4, 2017He couldn't have made a living as a film critic because he works too slowly, Thom Andersen (*1943) reveals in the introduction to his new collection of essays, Slow Writing. So he turned to teaching, a profession that became his vocation. In manifold ways as filmmaker and lecturer, author and curator, and cultural historian making interdisciplinary connections.
September 29 to October 8, 2017One of the key authors of modern American cinema, Todd Haynes (*1961) will visit the Austrian Film Museum for the first time, bringing with him not only his rarely screened early works and his widely celebrated features, but also his most recent film Wonderstruck, a virtuoso piece of cinematic craft and historical (re-)imagination.
September 5 to October 12, 2017Rounding off 13 years of The Utopia of Film, the Film Museum will show 13 programs, mostly from the collection and including several new acquisitions. Three large fall retrospectives (2004, 2008, 2012) and 103 monthly "chapters" carried that title but it is equally applicable to all the other activities conducted by the Austrian Film Museum.
