  • Ulrich Seidl: All Films 1980-2017 (Complete Works)

    "No one is safe from Ulrich Seidl", John Waters once said, with fitting ambiguity. No one. Not we, the audience, watching. Not we, the audience, who see ourselves in the protagonists, scenes and realities. "I don't make the world shocking and unbearable. I only try to depict it realistically," Seidl says of his work. With his signature mix of fiction and documentary, professional and lay actors, and an eye always to "authenticity", Seidl established himself through works such as "Good News" (1990), "Animal Love" (1995) and "Models" (1998). His fiction feature film debut "Dog Days" (2001), won the Grand Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival in 2001. "Import Export" (2007), the first film that Seidl made with his own production company, was followed by his successful, prize-winning "PARADISE Trilogy" (2012), whose parts premiered consecutively in competition at Cannes, Venice and Berlin. Next came "In the Basement" (2014), which premiered at the Venice Film Festival, as did "Safari" (2016) in 2016.
    Now, for the first time, all of Ulrich Seidl's works - from his earliest shorts to his award-winning documentary and fiction features - are collected in a single DVD edition. All his works for television are also included, such as "The Last Men", "Fun without Limits", "The Bosom Friend", "Pictures at an Exhibition", as well as his latest theatrical feature "Safari". Of particular rarity is "War in Vienna", a film that Seidl directed in 1989 together with Michael Glawogger, now available on DVD for the first time.

    Supplementing the voluminous filmography are two full bonus DVDs with new interviews and numerous deleted scenes from various films (which required extensive preparation) as well as a 240-page book about Seidl's work, "Challenge. The films of Ulrich Seidl", written by noted Profil journalist Stefan Grissemann. It also includes a long interview with Seidl fan John Waters.
