being an actor*

This video is inspired by Robert Bresson's “Notes On Cinography” and contains quotations from it. It deals with the fact that many actors * struggle with psychological problems, some of which even lead to suicide.
Using three quotations from “Notes On Cinography”, the attempt is made to portray this process in three sequences on film.

Director Statement

As an artist and art historian, I am primarily concerned with issues of sustainability and the human world of emotions. My focus is on sculpture and film. I entered the world of art through my education in sculpturing. My path led me from working with hammer and chisel to experimenting with disposable materials. When I studied art at the university Mozarteum in Innsbruck I caught up in the medium of film, which I've been very enthusiastic about ever since.
