The lost and past futures


The lost and past futures


The lost and past futures is a political-poetic reflection on the city of Vienna that takes its starting point in the failed March Revolution of 1848. The film focuses on resistance, memory, and history in relation to current social and political issues. What connections can be made from the failed resistance movements of the past to our present and future? How can we overcome the histories and memories immured in the city itself? This multi-layered essay film takes a deep look into the unconscious of a European capital and its inhabitants.
