Vienna’s Prater is an amusement park and a desire machine. No mechanical invention, novel idea, or sensational innovation could escape incorporation into the Prater. The breathtaking, often surreal images in Ulrike Ottinger’s striking documentary plunge the spectator into their own universe of desires and sensations. The film brings together the cultural history of the oldest amusement park in the world with brilliant insights into the changeability of technological attractions to consider the evolving meaning and enduring allure of a place where seemingly everything is possible.
