Die Schwingen des Geistes

Short Film, AT 2019, 29 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 2

Third act of the encounter between the two dissimilar but inseparable musicologists Szabo and Fitzthum: an escaped parrot, an academic symposium, Austria’s most important vinyl single in the 1960s, and again an apartment in need of tidying. From these simple, yet semantically charged props, Albert Meisl conjures up a contemporary comedy from the spirit of cinema past.
