These shorts, executed between 1984 and 1986 in Vienna, exude an amazingly fresh intimacy and vitality. Referred to by the filmmakers as "home movies", they record actionistic performances in the directors´ own living quarters, with added soundtracks of intermittent percussive sounds.
(Alice Kuzniar)
