The last film by Michael Glawogger, finished two and a half years after the director’s death by Monika Willi, his long-time editor, who edited the recorded footage according to Glawogger’s notes taken during the shooting of the film. In 2013, he decided to do away with the routine and set off on a year-long journey with his camera but without any particular plans. He ended up travelling for more than four months, from north to south, through successive circles of hell, through the distorted reflections of a still prosperous and safe Europe. Glawogger has left us with a film which is a summary of his uncompromising work. Untitled received a standing ovation lasting for several minutes at the Berlin Film Festival.
