DIAGONALE 2012 part 2

I never mentioned who i was with at the festival :)
My close friend and great actress Claudia Kainberger(her Blog) was so kind to let me and filmmaker Anna Spannlang (her Blog) crash on her couch for the 3 days.
Also in town was Bernd Oppl, he actually showed his short experimental Film "Hotel Room"

Speaking of Anna and Bernd, we went out one night to the Papierfabrik in graz (hot new place to be we were told). It was more some older hippie guy playing his 60s records and Motown favorites. Which is not so bad but actually everyone just wanted to shake their booty to electronic music ;)
Somehow we stayed until 4:30 though i think.
On the way home Bernd had a great idea - due to the fact that i was thursday evening (WE KNOW! actually friday morning duh!)- he came out and told us that he was .... watching Germanys next Topmodel!! We were shocked! but decided to crash with him in his great "Hotel Room" - HA!

The next morning we snuck into the lobby and had a great yummy breakfast! Thanks Bernd and Diagonale :)

Berndi and Anna(why didn't i take any pics of Anna at all?) breakfast talk :)

So but now we should focus on why i was actually at the Diagonale :)
Frist Film of the day was the opening Film of the Festival SPANIEN by Anja Salomonowitz.

Conned by smugglers, Moldavian Sava finds himself stranded in Austria. Hundreds of kilometers away from his desired destination, he meets a woman named Magdalena in a church. She is also estranged – from herself and from her ex-husband who desperately longs to be by her side again. 

And then there's Gabriel, who by chance and misfortune holds the reins to a tightly knit web of relationships. A film about the search for one destination that might be worth reaching.

Then everything got a bit tricky, like it always is i wanted to see 2 or more movies at the same time.
In this case it was:
KUMA by Umut Dàng
DONAUSPITAL by Nikolas Geyrhalter
STOFF DER HEIMAT by Othmar Schmiderer
Experimentalfilmprogramm 4
Bernd(in se middle) and two other film makers haha

Ended up watching the Experimental films. Because Bernd was Showin his film there.
If that wouldn't have been the case i would have watched KUMA probably.

At the end of the day it was really nice to watch a Film that just makes you laugh. And really! i am no comedy guy normally but "WIE MAN LEBEN SOLL" by David Schalko is just to funny!
So great! :)

Talk with David Schalko after his movie(a little bit of a drunk haha, but it was late)

Taboo is a radical story about forbidden love. Georg Trakl pays homage to a historically unproven affair with his sister in his poems. In Vienna, they indulge in their illicit intimacy. Georg, however, increasingly succumbs to societal pressure, and with it falls into drug use. 

This drives Grete into the arms of her music teacher, but she will not give in to this fate so easily. In the end, it is a question of existing together or not at all.

Diagonale Part 3 - soon to come :)

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.
These manifest themselves in the way you dress, the music you listen to, the political views you get or set as a standard for yourself.
At some point i got to an age where i thought "okay i have to be grown up now"
And that involved bundling up my past and letting it be - even looking at what i thought was right back then or belittling the essences of my former lifestyle (music, politics, etc).
The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget

Beautiful Helena Severin @ Wienermodels in Jana Wieland

Some Shoe designer showcases great shoes in the dark with only the models mobile-phone shining on the feet - or directly at the face of the model - BOO!
(The shoes were shown on the back screen and looked…

This artist doesn't need an explaination. I think the pictures speak/yell loudly for their selves.
