Werner Herzog named Ulrich Seidl one of his ten favorite filmmakers and said about his film Animal Love: “Never before in cinema have I been able to look straight into hell.“ His first fiction feature, Dog Days, won the Special Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Venice Film Festival. Import / Export, the first film he also produced, premiered in competition in Cannes in 2007. Currently he is working on two new projects: Paradise, a fiction feature and In the Basement, a documentary feature.

Good News / Ulrich Seidl

Good News is a film about modern slaves and modern overseers, about little animals, little apartments, little people, and little stories, about the insanity of normalcy in Austria. It is about newspaper vendors in their yellow and red uniforms: young men from India and Egypt, from Pakistan and Turkey – Muslims from the Third World who sell newspapers in the streets of Vienna. On the one hand the world of newspaper vendors, on the other the world of newspaper readers in Austria’s living rooms.
