Knittelfeld: A Town Without a History

Knittelfeld – Stadt ohne Geschichte

Directed by Gerhard Friedl
Austria, 1997
Avant-Garde, Short


Knittelfeld is a small Austrian town. In 1977, the family Pritz moved into Knittelfeld and confronted the town with a very unusual degree of suffering, crime and manslaughter. A landscape film where Friedl writes a violent story into this environment which seems perfectly idyllic.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
