VIENNA’S CINEMAS is a journey through Vienna’s movie theaters from 1896 to today.

Plot Outline

A documentary that looks at the problems for young modern Israelis returning to the Germanic countries of central Europe, and in particular how this impacts upon older generations of their families, who had to leave countries like Austria and Germany. Central to the film is the impending move to Berlin of the two filmmakers Gil Levanon and Kat Rohrer. The former has a grandfather who cannot forgive Germany for what it did to him and his family, whereas the latter is an Austrian whose grandfather was a committed Nazi.

Plot Outline

To make phone calls, send money, surf the net – that’s what brings people to this small call shop in Vienna. Homesickness and love, worries and hopes, doubts and uncertainty – all these issues are discussed in the small phone booths, where homeland and belonging stand in total contradiction.
To keep in touch or to say farewell? – In her latest film, Nina Kusturica (Little Alien) tells of living in a foreign land and the yearning to overcome distances.
