INDEX-DVD Nr.49: FRIEDL KUBELKA VOM GRÖLLER – One Is Not Enough. Photography & Film Buch // DVD // Magazin
Edited by Dietmar Schwärzler
Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König and INDEX Edition
The heart of Friedl Kubelka´s photographic work (who as a filmmaker goes by the name of Friedl vom Gröller) is constituted by portraiture . whether she captures friends, acquaintances, family members, filmmakers, artists or simply clients, each for the most part gazing directly into the camera. Since 1972 to the present, Kubelka has also placed herself in front of the camera for her project Jahresportraits (Yearly Portraits) in which she mercilessly documents the process of aging.

INDEX-DVD Nr.50: ALFRED KAISER Decomposing Nazi Phraseology
In the second half of the 1970s Alfred Kaiser was entirely unknown to the film world when he went public with two films, namely A Third Reich (1975) and A Third Reich from Its Refuse (1977). Both compilation films bridge the threshold between avant-garde and documentary cinema and were enthusiastically received by audiences and film critics alike upon their release. To this day, these two closely related films occupy 
a place of particular significance in the history of Austrian cinema, not least due to their subject matter and compositional virtuosity.

Tribute to Gustav Deutsch at Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival 2019

Focussing on two main topics in his cinematographic work, the film archive and the home movie, the extended retrospective at this year´s Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival will include both his famous archival found footage Trilogy “FILM IST” as well as Gustav´s latest film HOW WE LIVEMESSAGES TO THE FAMILY which entirely consists of so called home movie material from the last century to today´s mobile-phone clips of a journey he did.
