Die vergangenen Zukünfte

Documentary Film, AT 2021, analog - 16mm, 98 min, OmeU

One concern of people is to stand up for ideas. In Die vergangenen Zukünfte, Johannes Gierlinger takes as starting point, a special moment in time, the revolution in March of 1848. From here, a dynamic Vienna unfolds that tells of torched palaces and expensive sneakers, of anarchistic reading material lying on wooden benches, and ignored memorials. An analogue-film essay, daring and nonetheless peaceful, inspiring and initiating contemplation.
