Description

Ulrich Seidl makes a return to documentary filmmaking by investigating the odd and sometimes disturbing activities in the basement of seemingly average Austrians. Not unlike his Paradise Trilogy, Seidl mines curiosity, sympathy and humanity in people’s obsessions. "Many Austrians spend more time in the basement of their home than in their living room, which often is only for show. In the basement they actually indulge their needs, their hobbies, passions and obsessions. But in our unconscious, the basement is also a place of darkness, a place of fear, a place of human abysses.“ (Urlich Seidl)
