DAS UNMÖGLICHE BILD / The Impossible Picture

DAS UNMÖGLICHE BILD / The Impossible Picture

Vienna in the 1950s: a childhood captured on 8 mm film, recorded by thirteenyear-old Johanna. A childhood as it occurred in the past – or at least, in memory. Fragments of a family history permeated by a particular secret. A household full of women and in it, one constant element: the grandmother Maria Steinwendner who organizes weekly cooking clubs. But somehow, no cooking ever takes place.

SANDRA WOLLNER, born in 1983, studied at the University of Vienna and worked as an editor, director, and post-production director. Wollner attends the documentary filmmaking program at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. The Impossible Picture, her first feature film, received the German Cinema New Talent Award at the Hof International Film Festival 2016. // Films (selection): Uns geht es gut (co-directed by Michaela Taschek, Britta Schoening, 2013, short), Mountains & Molehills (2013, doc), Louis & Luk (2014, short doc), Viktor (2015, short), Das unmögliche Bild (The Impossible Picture, 2016)
