28 well-known filmmakers living and working in Austria were invited by WIENER MOZARTJAHR 2006 (VIENNA MOZART YEAR 2006), to produce associative miniatures on Mozart. The only requirement: They had to be one-minute art films.
The directors come from a broad spectrum of different backgrounds, ranging from animated, experimental short film to documentaries and features. As a result the Mozart Minutes represent an impressive cross section of the kind of films produced in Austria and a multifacetted sampler of formal and ontextual views of Mozart and his influence on modern society, art and culture.
The contributions run the gamut from experimental and conceptual statements to socio-critical and documentary observations and pithy short films.
