Josef – My Father´s Criminal Record (19 minutes)

After tackling her grandfathers live story in her previous book, Der Zuhälter und seine Trophäen, the writer and director Antoinette Zwirchmayr focuses on her father. He was a bank robber, a stigma that practically means absolute seclusion in a small town community. The author portrays her father with curiosity and understanding and tries to uncover the motifs of his criminal action.

Subhuman (24 minutes)

During a rehearsal, Jasper decides to give his monologue an extra weight by improvising using a gun. The director is not on board with this spontaneous decision, as he thinks it’s just a pose, lack of humbleness and imagination and unnecessary pompousness. Jasper then goes on to test his talents outside of the theatre and the situation escalates. The thin line between the real life and acting is fading and being as authentic as possible becomes the ultimate goal.

Home Is Not a Place (14 minutes)

Through second-hand memories and fragments of 8mm film from her grandparents’ personal archive the author attempts to recreate the chronicle of his Slovak origin family. Her grandparents worked in Pakistan, Kenya and Austria, but during the politically charged times of 1968 Prague they had to chose between freedom and their loved ones. The film is a fragile ode to humanity and awareness of one’s own complicated history.
