Tiere und andere Menschen
Animals and Other People
Animals And Other People introduces viewers to Vienna’s animal shelter and its inhabitants. The encounters between human and animal and the individual stories and peculiarities are affectionate, sometimes sad, and then again, strange. A tender gaze at the nature of the animals and a critical look at human irresponsibility.

With ANIMALS AND OTHER PEOPLE has turned his hand to directing for the first time, devoting his attention to a subject which has been close to his heart since early childhood, even though a chance visit to the Vienna Animal Shelter triggered his filmic observation of the affinities between people and animals.
