The making of about our cooperation with the Canadian Actress and Performer Stephanie Cumming and the artistic coordinator of the whole SONGBOOK project Michael Haneke will be aired both on ARTE and the Austrian State Broadcaster Television ORF.
Michael Haneke invited the legendary Jean-Louis Trintignant to a Filmakademie Wien. What a treat to see their admiration for each other plus being so close to Jean-Louis and having the possibility to ask questions on his work with film directors. Unforgettable.
Michael Haneke has selected 10 directors for the SONGBOOK Project. Gretchen am Spinnrade by Magdalena Chmielewska is among the selected projects.
What is pure imagination and what is reality? The dream-like portrayals of Gretchen’s spinning and brooding in her love to Faust make it nearly impossible to differentiate. Her love is a constant toing and froing between pure passion and panic desperation, between slowing down and accelerating – the principle upon which Schubert’s masterpiece rests. Gretchen am Spinnrade is a cooperation between Filmakademie Wien and the Austrian State Broadcaster ORF. It was made under the auspices of Michael Haneke and won the Audience Award at the SONGBOOK online competition on the European Culture Chanel ARTE.
Michael Haneke invited his old friend Abbas Kiarostami to Filmakademie Wien. Three days with the Iranian master. Unforgettable.
Gretchen am Spinnrade wins the Snake Award for the best short film at the Martinique Film Festival.
