Hundstage/Dog Days / Dog Days

It?s a stifling hot weekend in the suburbs of Vienna, somewhere between the autobahn, the hypermarkets and the new housing estates. During these dog days of summer, six interwoven stories unfold, revealing a world of disillusionment and lonely souls. In these hours of listlessness and melancholy the characters give in to the sun in shorts and bikinis. The nights become fuelled with alcohol, sex and music. With no respite from the oppressive heat, tension gradually builds and the atmosphere fills with aggression, fury and contained violence; it?s only a matter of time before everything explodes. A look into a vulnerable, intimate and harsh world.
Born in Vienna in 1952 and, having studied at the National Film School of the Austrian capital, started shooting with the shorts Einsvierig (1980), Der Ball (1982) and Look 84 (1984). He subsequently went on to specialize in documentaries: Mit Verlust ist zu rechnen (1992), Die Letzten Männer (The Last Real Men, 1994), Tierische Liebe (Animal Love, 1995), Spass ohne Grenzen (1998) and Models (1999). His most recent works are Hundstage (2001), Zur Lage: Österreich in sechs Kapiteln (State of the Nation: Austria in Six Chapters, 2002) and Jesus, Du weisst (Jesus, You Know, 2003).
