Step into Austria’s film past with these newly restored prints of classic silent cinema. Screenings are accompanied by live piano music from composer Gerhard Gruber as well as traditional Japanese benshi narration for some shows. Highlights on offer include the roaring twenties tale Cafe Elektric, starring a young Marlene Dietrich and featuring the directorial work of Ernst Lubitsch who would find later fame in Hollywood. Many of the films are screened alongside some very mild, and extremely amusing, erotic shorts.
