Danube Hospital

Nikolaus Geyrhalter
Danube Hospital, a portrait of one of Europe’s largest hospitals, shows the daily routines and work processes at a powerful and highly complex institution. By depicting a modern healthcare facility, Danube Hospitalholds a mirror to our society to show how it deals with health and illness, life and death. Nikolaus Geyrhalter observes what goes on in a variety of zones, in conference areas, ORs, patients’ rooms, the disinfection and pathology departments, and the kitchen. As the film visits all these areas, it follows an ingenious principle of a puzzle whose pieces produce an effect only when fully assembled
