Jessica Hausner created Lourdes with her well-rehearsed team. Hausner wrote the screenplay herself for this drama about the miracle healing of Christine, afflicted with multiple sclerosis, who travels to the pilgrimage site Lourdes and can suddenly walk again. The experimental short Arabesque for Kenneth Anger by Marie Menken with music by Teiji Ito completes the program slot.
