In collaboration with Gerald Harringer
The anthology film “Rosas Reise” is a journey through time of the years 1945, 1961, 1975, 1986, and 2015. A train journey which begins in the Northern Mühlviertel district and ends in Paris connects the stories. All episodes are based on true events from the time of the Nazi dictatorship and cast light on the different suppression strategies over time.
The work group for the project was created with screenwriter and partner Gerald Harringer.
Circle of Steel juxtaposes two worlds. On one side is Gary, Indiana, which once experienced a boom as steel stronghold amidst the industrial regions around Chicago and Detroit in the Northeast of the United States. Only a few decades later, this phenomenon seems to repeat itself in Linz (Austria). In the experimental film, we let both cities merge and observe the metamorphosis of the city from rise to decline.

A Turk (Ihsan Banabak) and an Austrian (Gerald Harringer) row down the Danube from Linz right through Southeast Europe all the way to the Black Sea. The space of the unmotorized wooden rowboat is a floating and shaky microcosm. Rowing, cooking, eating, sleeping – everything takes place in just a few square meters. The leisurely journey takes us through heavy storms and dark locks. And to people we would otherwise probably never have met.

The basis for the video installation “A Stroll Through Katsdorf” was a film from 1986, in which the now deceased Mr. Sackl from Katsdorf fastidiously filmed the entire town. 25 years later, we reconstructed the film 1:1. Every take, every pan, every zoom, the seasons and times of day as well as every camera wobble were replicated.
Defined by the changes of the town, it can thus be recognized and reflected upon by the viewer.

Haslin reads! The literature trailer – a preview of the live performances and readings by the writer Hermann Haslin from Linz – is a new format that concisely unites different works by the artist. Although stringently structured in 12×1 minutes, the personal cinematography between stage lighting and darkness offers an in-depth look into the stage life of Hermann Haslin.
Three women, fashion, and a white room. Photographic scenes are brought to life by short, looped movements. Edited as live visuals, the result is an enthralling rhythm between quick and abrupt jumps and female sensibility.
