AFS Presents: IN THE BASEMENT
December 6, 2015 @ 9:00 pm
DIRECTED BY ULRICH SEIDL
Austria, 2014, DCP, 81 min, In German with English subtitles
The documentaries of Austrian filmmaker Ulrich Seidl (The Paradise Trilogy) are not for the faint of heart; his newest film, IN THE BASEMENT, is no exception, proving that the cellar is a hiding place for objects as well as one’s inner desires. Featuring an array of sado-masochists, closet Nazis, right wing conservatives and families fit for a new Freudian textbook, this excellent documentary, which is a new artistic achievement for the director, seems to suggest where the soul of Austria is hidden away.
