Jumping Hochhäuser

Innovative Cinema Short, AT 2022, analog - 16mm, 16 min, OmeU
Program: Innovatives Kino Programm 1

One often reads that films have explosive power. This also applies to Tomash Schoiswohl’s analysis of the demolition of social housing in Linz, St. Louis, and Glasgow. However, his film also has jumping power as the filmmaker jumps up and down incessantly at the sites of capital’s new highrises in Vienna. A wild, inspiring proposal for agitational cinema that does not rely on well-known patterns, but instead, makes dissent tangible in leaps.
