"Highlights of domestic short filmmaking from 1992 - 2001 are gathered in this compilation: SONNENFLECKEN (1998) by Barbara Albert, ÄGYPTEN (1997) by Kathrin Resetarits, AUTOMATIC (2002) by Josef Dabernig/G.R.A.M., DIE SCHWARZE SONNE (1992) by Johannes Hammel, FLORA (1996) by Jessica Hausner, SPEAK EASY (1997) by Mirjam Unger, and - nominated for a short film Oscar - Virgil Widrich's COPY SHOP (2001). "The young female directors explore youthful lifeworlds, their male colleagues contribute varieties of science fiction and road movie." (Isabella Reicher) At this point, by the way, many thanks to Brigitta Burger-Utzer and sixpackfilm for their support and advice in explorations and selection in short and avant-garde film." CLAUS PHILLIP

"Seven films from ten years. A small slice of Austrian film history that depicts the captivating diversity of the 'small form'." ISABELLA REICHER
