Film as history. History in film: Along a broad spectrum of different types of films, such as trailers, weekly overview reports, avant-garde and feature films, in three chapters, the Filmarchiv Austria pursues the changeful charged relationship of film and history—including shifts in perspective and agitation: from the trauma of World War I and its expression in film to the politically contested 1930s and the postwar era through to the present. Naturally, numerous gems from the archive will surface on this journey through time.
