        • SYNOPSIS

          The film is about people and basements and what people do in their basements in their free time. The film is about obsessions. The film is about brass-band music and opera arias, about expensive furniture and cheap male jokes, about sexuality and shooting, fitness and fascism, whips and dolls. After his ambitious "Paradise Trilogy", Ulrich Seidl returns to the documentary form with In the Basement. A film essay that is both funny and sad, it uses the director‘s characteristic film tableaux to delve into the underground of the a Austrian soul.

          Ulrich Seidl


          Born 1952 in Vienna (Austria), is a director, author and producer. He started his career with award-winning documentaries such as Good News (1990), Animal Love (1995) and Models (1998).

          Seidl‘s first feature film Dog Days won the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival in 2001. Import Export (2007), the first film to be produced by his own production company, was followed by his successful and multiple-award-winning Paradise Trilogy (2012). The three films had their premiere in the competitions of the world‘s most important film festivals in Cannes, Venice and Berlin. ”In the Basement“ (2014), a film essay, is his newest work.

          This film is less about a specific area than a specific place in your home, or simply your life: The basement, be it literally or figuratively The result is a movie that I found sometimes sad, sometimes disturbing, always entertaining, and mostly harmless.
