The film portrait depicts for the first time the controversial Austrian filmmaker Ulrich Seidl at work, painting a vivid picture of the much-debated “Seidl method”: The camera patiently looks over Seidl’s shoulder during the shooting of In The Basement and accompanies him during rehearsals for his latest highly provocative stage production Böse Buben/Fiese Männer. In a suggestive montage, combining extensive interviews and clips from his earlier movies, this film gives a glimpse into the world of a fascinating and exceptional artist: It reveals just how much Seidl’s oeuvre is in itself a quest, on which he lets himself be guided both by “reality” and his own visions and demons.

Austria, 2014, 52 min, produced by Johannes Rosenberger, Christian Beetz and Werner Schweitzer.
