From Vienna’s Fischerstiege in the first district to the housing complex Wiener Flur in the 23rd district, the rear window becomes a window to the world. Barbara Kaufmann gives each view from a public housing apartment one minute. The Viennese daily life in the courtyard can only last this long: People come and go, children scream, a retiree is flipping through his newspaper. Cut. Next district. Located at the hairline border between documentary and experimental film, we indulge in blatant backyard voyeurism.
