Director, Editor: Rainer Frimmel
Cast: Peter Haindl
Camera: Peter Haindl
Rainer Frimmel’s documentary film debut Aufzeichnungen aus dem Tiefparterre is a montage of a self-documentation: for many years, Viennese truck driver Peter Haindl recorded himself on video, usually sitting at his living-room table or in a chair, addressing the camera. A monologue full of chasms and a pandemonium of the Austrian soul. Diagonale’22 is screening this film as the starting note of the program “Zur Person”, which this year is devoted to the filmmaker duo Rainer Frimmel und Tizza Covi.
