Good News

Ulrich Seidl's debut documentary feature focuses on newspaper vendors in their yellow and red uniforms: young men from India and Egypt, Pakistan and Turkey - Muslims from the third world who hawk newspapers on the streets of Vienna. Here the world of newspaper vendors, there the world of newspaper readers in their Austrian living rooms. "I wasn't interested in making a film to expose the machinations of a newspaper conglomerate, one intended solely to awaken viewers' compassion for newspaper vendors, or one that deals only in terms of good and evil, but rather a film that, through the observation of foreign worlds, turns your gaze to your own daily life and its insanity." – Ulrich Seidl
