ULRIKE OTTINGER - CINEMA WITHOUT FRONTIERS


synopsis

Superbia states "I am pride. The proud root of all evil. I am Superbia, the first of the seven capital sins. I am always the first. The tree of wickedness grows out of me. My six daughters are its forbidden fruit: gluttony, laziness, greed, anger, envy, lust." In this grotesque procession of a giant haystack with characters representing pride, edited with images of real military parades, Ulrike Ottinger depicts a subtle allegory of human vanities.
We have chosen to present ”Superbia - The Pride” to introduce the meeting with Ulrike Ottinger, as another filmmaker, Anne Faisandier, made a film (which will be screened at OWR this yeas as well) about its shooting and consequently, Ulrike’s creation process. This very short and wonderful film of Ulrike Ottinger stars, among many other actors, her old friend the famous French actress Delphine Seyrig, to whom our festival is paying tribute this year. It was originally part of the ”Seven Women, Seven Sins" omnibus film made with Chantal Akerman, Valie Export, Laurence Gavron, Bette Gordon, Helke Sander and Maxi Cohen, all women filmmakers whose works we intend to present at OWR: last year Chantal Akerman, this year Valie Export and Ulrike Ottinger, and we will surely continue during the next years!
