Manfred Rainer, Pawel Szostak & Hannah Rosa Öllinger – Protest ohne Ästhetik und Form (Austria 2011, 14:40 mins.)

The short film “Protest ohne Ästhetik und Form” tells the story of the fictitious protest movement in Warsaw in the late 90s. The protagonist Pawel sketches the nearly hopeless attempts of an anticapitalist protest that tries to be neither nostalgic nor in danger of being incorporated. The film is a thought experiment about transformation as a permanent condition and weak gestures of resistance.
