Writer Statement

Violence and how it emerges, how people respond to it and what it means for every single person within a small group - these are the questions that Infamies is exploring.

In the footprints of Wes Craven’s cult movie Last House on the Left (1972), Sam Peckinpah’s masterpiece Straw Dogs (1971) and Caspar Noé’s Nightmare Irreversible (2002), Infamies is a consequent progression of those themes. Dark, rough and non-sugar-coated it explores the dark side of human nature, which presents itself fully once the spiral of violence has begun to turn.

In recent years, Austrian filmmakers have proven successfully that it is possible to produce genre movies of international stature in Austria. The Dark Valley (2014); Jack (2015) and especially Goodnight Mommy (2014), which garnered awards in Venice and Toronto and earned a nationwide domestic release by Radius TWC, are two of the latest examples.

The cross-over of genre and arthouse is no longer a rarity. The borders between these formerly contradictory approaches are fading, which is a very positive trend because it should neither be the purpose of art to be bulky and unapproachable, nor should the genre be satisfied with shallowness and a lack of substance.

Instead it is my intention to create a movie that is demanding and entertaining as well. A movie that thrills genre fans, challenges festival visitors and proves once more that the young Austrian genre film is something to be reckoned with!
