Paradies: Hoffnung


Mit der österreichischen Erstaufführung von Ulrich Seidls Paradies: Hoffnung eröffnete gestern Abend die 16. Diagonale in Graz. 

Neben dem Regisseur waren auch die beiden Hauptdarsteller/innen Melanie Lenz und Joseph Lorenz sowie zahlreiche weitere Mitglieder der Filmcrew bei der Premiere anwesend. Prominenz aus Politik, Wirtschaft, Kunst und Kultur füllte die Helmut-List-Halle bis auf den letzten Platz.

In Kooperation mit der VDFS hat die Diagonale bereits zum Startschuss des Festivals einen viel beachteten Preis vergeben. Maria Hofstätter wurde mit dem Großen Diagonale-Schauspielpreis für ihre Verdienste um die österreichische Filmkultur ausgezeichnet. 

Die gebürtige Oberösterreicherin nahm den Preis, ein von dem renommierten Künstler Herbert Brandl gestiftetes Drehbild, persönlich entgegen. Hofstätter zeigte sich in ihrer Dankesrede überrascht, aber umso mehr erfreut über die Entscheidung der Jury und bezeichnete die Diagonale als wichtigen Ort der Filmkultur. Mit dem Großen Diagonale-Schauspielpreis erfuhr ihre von herausragenden Rollen in Film und Fernsehen geprägte Schauspielkarriere ihre erste offizielle Würdigung in Österreich.

The "Problem" with being me.

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

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
