The here and now, the melancholy and the joyful, the everyday and the magical are the focus of this portrait of Austria's foremost film essayist. @i:For some friends:i@ is made about, for and with Michael Pilz, and is just as much a documentary film as a filmic experiment. “Is it even possible to make a film about the lightness of an instant and about drifting into a friendship? Or does reaching for the camera interrupt the flow?“ asks director Gabriele Hochleitner. A film about life; personal, honest and poetic.
