Prose, history and stories are distilled into a fragmentary visual memory, which Christine Nagel poetically interweaves with the urban space as she strolls through Vienna. It is enhanced by Ilse Aichinger’s self-produced Super-8 recordings and by scenes, which trace the alienation of the protagonist of her eponymous short story. The film treats us to an aesthetically diverse portrait of the author, whose work possesses a timeless existential dimension.
