Inhalt

‘This film seeks to create an image of the world that can only be made if you follow a topic without trying to judge or pursue a particular aim. It’s about allowing oneself to drift along, propelled by nothing except your own curiosity and intuition’. These are the words of Michael Glawogger, whose earlier films had often been about global exploitation. In 2014 the director died during his aimless journey through the Balkans, Italy, North and West Africa after contracting malaria just five months earlier. Two years after his death, his editor Monika Willi took on the task of completing his film. Combining hard cuts with a gentler, quieter style of editing she has shaped from Glawogger’s footage a fascinating, visually stunning document accompanied by a strong but unobtrusive mixture of original and composed sounds. 

"Untitled" is a restless film about movement and travelling, about the unknown and the other. Above all however – and this what turns the magic of the images andthe act of observing into a truly exciting experience – this is a filmabout the poetry of the arbitrary. A trip across the world in order toobserve, listen and experience. A journey that is raw, courageous andhonest.
