Babooska

Documentary Film, AT/IT 2005, 100 min, OmdU

The second collaborative documentary by Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel, Babooska, follows the eponymous young artiste as she tours throughout Italy with a traveling circus. For a year, the directors traveled along, which gave rise to a road movie about modern nomadic life. At the Diagonale 2006, Babooska was awarded the Grand Diagonale Prize for Best Austrian Documentary.
