Hotel is a key film in Jessica Hausner’s ouevre, with which she also aroused international attention. At the center of the psycho-thriller is a receptionist at an Alpine hotel whose fate begins to intertwine with that of her predecessor who vanished mysteriously. Shown as a pre-film will be the experimental short Meshes of the Afternoon by Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid. The work of the U.S.-American avant-garde director as well as the sound world of the composer Teiji Ito who died in 1982, were great sources of inspiration for Hausner’s oeuvre.
