Elfriede Jelinek - Language Unleashed
Child prodigy, scandal writer, traitor of the fatherland, theatre fury, feminist, fashion lover, communist, pessimist, language terrorist, rebel, enfant terrible, defiler of the nest, and brilliant, vulnerable artist.
A multi-layered, associative film portrait about the first Austrian female author to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, "Elfriede Jelinek - Language Unleashed" offers a unique insight of the Austrian author‘s artistic approach to language and the creation of her work in a contemporary context. German actors Sandra Hüller, Ilse Ritter, Stefanie Reinsperger and Martin Wuttke recite her texts and offer us an inkling of the artistic challenge and extreme pleasure of working with those texts.
