Michael Glawogger (Austria)

Michael Glawogger was born in Graz, Austria, in 1959. He was a traveling filmmaker. Not only did he literally journey around the world for his documentaries, he also moved back and forth between forms and genres, between photography and writing, between gentler and more forceful tones. He graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute and the Vienna Film Academy and worked as a director, writer, and cinematographer in Vienna, Bangkok, and Znojmo.
