Also in southern Burgenland, an attempt is made to “starve the virus.” Kristina Schranz returns to her hometown and films the first chapters of the pandemic. Between spring and Christmas 2020, from the first lockdown—in which everyone’s hanging out alone, kindergarten teachers are disinfecting the toys, and the pastry chef is standing alone in the bakery—through the opening in the summer until the second closure. For the most part, the mood is serious, the new emptiness is demanding. What’s next?
