Elfriede Irrall "ums freiwerden hätte es ja gehen sollen"

March 3, 2019
Elfriede Irrall (1938–2018) handed her film collection over to the Austrian Film Museum in banana boxes and cookie tins. It is little known that the famous theater and film actress stood behind the camera as well as in front of it. Katharina Müller and Stefanie Zingl present a special discovery from our archive.
