MICHAEL GLAWOGGER: UNTITLED
SUNDAY MAY 07, 07:00 PM
Metrograph and European Film Promotion are proud to present Michael Glawogger’s Untitled as the closing night film of their series True Stories: New Non-Fiction from Europe.
When the great Glawogger died of malaria in Monrovia, Liberia, he was in the midst of a yearlong period of footloose travel, at work on a new kind of open-ended movie. Untitled is comprised of the globetrotting material he shot on this pilgrimage-without-a-destination and the notes he took along the way, an immensely affecting testament to the artist’s boundless curiosity and cinematographic virtuosity that vibrates with vitality before arriving at a coda of gentle resignation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Director, writer and cinematographer. Covering and crossing all genres. World-acclaimed for his essayist documentaries Megacities (2009), Workingman's Death (2004) and Whores' Glory (2011) in which he portrayed a world of troubled beauty.
Michael Glawogger died while shooting in Liberia for his film Untitled, for which he had set out on a one year journey to "give a view of the world that can only emerge by not pursuing any particular theme, by refraining from passing judgment, proceeding without aim. Drifting with no direction except one’s own curiosity and intuition.”
