"'My Seven places' starts at the moment I was evicted from several places which are dear to me. They served me well as homes, both as place for living and working. This was the start of my urban wandering, which would take me ten years - a journey of 300.000 kilometers - before returning just about to my starting point. The adventure was both physical and metaphysical.
Klaus Telscher is one of the most important German experimental filmmakers of the 1980s and 90s. His sophisticated work is atmospherically dense, playful as well as caustic, and his complex filmic structures are matched by his subtle photography.
This documentary diary was shot between 2005 and 2009 on four different continents, as a subjective journey into the universe of experimental cinema. It is an exploration of the many alternative film forms developed by innovative figures such as Jonas Mekas (USA), Peter Kubelka (Austria), Guy Sherwin (UK) among many others. These paths of discovery lead us to encounters with numerous production and distribution institutions created specifically for experimental films.

INDEX is proud to present Ernst Schmidt Jr - ViennaFilm 1896-1976, available for the first time with English subtitles:
Particularly in the ’70s and early ’80s, Ingo Petzke was a force to reckon with. This was mostly due to his effervescent, encompassing activities in the arena of experimental film: writing and teaching, starting art house cinemas and even festivals, sitting on juries and boards, running CINE PRO – Germany’s only distribution company specialised in experimental film – and even funding cash prices for budding film makers. Last but not least he was a filmmaker in his own right.
