    Due to his distinctive style Ulrich Seidl is among the most discussed film auteurs of the last years. Always walking a fine line between documentary and fiction, his films  bring to light the abysmal aspects of Austrian lower middle class life and provoke with a degree of reality that goes to the limits of endurance.

    The first film portrait of the Austrian filmmaker accompanies him during the work on his new film “In the Basement” and on his theatrical production “Böse Buben” at Münchner Kammerspiele, offering revealing insights in the much-discussed “Seidl method”.

    On October 5th at 11am the co-production of Navigatorfilm, Dschoint Ventschr and ZDF/arte will be screened for the very first time at Zurich Film Festival!

    On Thursday, 18th of September, “Berlin Stories – Books of a City” will have its world premiere in Haus der Berliner Festspiele. The film will be screened at 9 p.m. as part of the Berlin International Literature Festival.




    The event is open to all and  admission is free!




     

    “Berlin Stories” looks upon Berlin from literature’s perspective:  from classics as Alfred Döblin’s “Berlin Alexanderplatz” and Ulrich Plenzdorf’s „Legende vom Glück ohne Ende“ to Sven Regener’s cult book „Herr Lehmann“, and to „Berlin liegt im Osten“, which was written by German-Russian author Nellja Veremej and published last year. The result is a character study of the capital based on the stories that were and are written there.
