VOLVER LA VISTA - DER UMGEKEHRTE BLICK (The gaze back) A/MX 2006, 35mm, Farbe, 94min.
The film moves the viewer into the perspective of a foreigner. Mexicans who live in Austria and Austrians who spend their lives in Mexico: through clichés, yearnings, and personal experiences, they create a picture of their ideas of the countries where they came from, and through determining their location, attempt to their identity. They are accompanied by two cinematographers, who also go to a “foreign” place. Their views go along with the narrators and narratives into the respective, other country.
