Canale Grande

Innovative Cinema, AT/DE 1983, 88 min, OmeU

Canale Grande by artist Friederike Pezold is one of the secret masterpieces of Austrian cinema and a prime example of film as subversive art. In this constantly surprising low-budget film, the protagonist (Pezold herself) becomes fed up with conventional television and invents her own form of broadcasting, or rather “narrowcasting”: a fantastic, very funny and highly personal program for a private audience.
