Labeling Nikolaus Geyrhalters work as one of the best gazes in contemporary cinema , the Milano festival pays a tribute to the Austrian documentary filmer.
An implicitly political author, by the situations and moments he relates, Geyrhalter, is not a filmmaker who shouts
out his poetics, but one who chooses the reality in which to immerse himself, he outlines a visual perimeter and he invites
viewers to plunge in with their own freedom., states the festival programme.
The tribute includes a masterclass and the screenings of The Year After Dayton (1997), Pripyat (1999), Our Daily Bread (2005) as well as the Italien premiere of Geyrhalters highly acclaimed Over The Years, released at the Berlinale 2015.
