in cooperation with “kinoki – Verein für audiovisuelle Selbstbestimmung”

“Produced on behalf of the Austrian federal government, designed in the guise of a comedic feature film pamphlet against the occupying powers. Three years before the signing of the State Treaty this first and last ‘state film’ handles the historical facts with considerable license – and the match ‘Austria versus the rest of the world’ ends in the appropriate manner.” (Diagonale 2000)
