Introduzione all’Oscuro is Gastón Solnicki’s cinematic elegy to Hans Hurch, the long-serving director of the Viennale who unexpectedly passed away in July 2017. Through a series of contemplative vignettes set in the streets of Vienna, the film offers a glimpse into Hurch’s fascinating and flamboyant life. Toying cleverly with nostalgia and the idea of personal histories, Solnicki delivers a fitting tribute to this influential figure while revealing the spectral presences that linger not only in our minds but in the cafes, museums and concert halls of our cities.
This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Gastón Solnicki hosted by Eva Sangiorgi, artistic director of the Viennale.
