Krieg in Wien 1989

< back
A film about the news, life, love, and death. Four days in Vienna. Four days of world news. At home we give birth, teach our children, wash our dead, or just wait for the bus. These everyday images are presented in striking contrast to the images television brings us during this period. A Philippine ferry sinks, Saddam Hussein decorates soldiers, and in Vienna there is a war that never happened.
