The greatest ever change in economic order is within reach! All that remains to be done is to overcome conventional thinking and accept the concept of unconditional basic income. In his montage documentary, the Austrian director simulates the history of the efforts to implement this reform, and, with futuristic playfulness, extrapolates its possible future development.

biography

Christian Tod (1977) is an Austrian economist and documentarian, who both in his professional capacity in the university environment and as a filmmaker – specifically in his Free Lunch Society – focuses on the topic of unconditional basic income.

Ghost Hunting
A group of former Palestinian prisoners from Israel’s Al Moskobiya detention centre enter a large hall. Watched closely by the cameras, they re-enact scenes from their captivity. The re-enactments are both memory and interaction. The resulting reflection on the everyday routine of life in an interrogation facility helps only some of the participants chase away their personal demons.

The Silence of Others
A chronicle of institutional displacement of the mass genocide by the Francoist clergo-fascist regime in Spain. An amnesty along with the so-called “Pact of Forgetting” (1977) have erased political crimes and made over one thousand victims of terror invisible. Historic images and dozens of survivor testimonies present a survey of the struggle against collective amnesia.

Weapon of Choice
The Glock handgun is popular among black rappers, Austrian soldiers, and Middle Eastern tyrants. But the person who loves it most is its inventor, Gaston Glock. In this short reportage on the controversial arms industry, Austrian director Fritz Ofner’s clear objective is to demystify the story of a weapon, supposedly invented in a garage, that never fails.

The Venerable W.
Wirathu, an influential and much-respected monk, is the embodiment of a shocking form of Buddhist nationalism in Myanmar, as he openly calls for the oppression and liquidation of the Muslim minority. This film provides an intimate insight of the background of an ethnic conflict, stirred up by proven propaganda methods, which chillingly parallels the current Islamophobia in Europe.

Another Planet
This animated documentary tracks the making of a freeform compilation of computer models of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. The state prosecutor, architect, graphic designer, and others explain their motives for creating them. The resulting mosaic links two themes of how virtual reality can be used: to preserve memory and as a tool to cope with trauma.
