Within four months and 19 days, the footage for UNTITLED has been created in different regions in the world – in the Balkans, Italy and North West and West Africa. It was designed to be a yearlong journey, but in April 2014, director Michael Glawogger died of malaria in Liberia. His editor Monika Willi added the filmmaker’s travel diary texts to the footage and created a film that pays tribute to the love of discovering, to letting yourself drift and to sometimes wanting to hide somewhere in the world on the one hand, and on the other hand, it is a try to get closer to the world and its inhabitants. Most of all, UNTITLED is the completion of Glawoggers filmic work – not least due to Willi’s very personal and delicate treatment of the footage. Glawogger’s work ranges from documentaries like Whore’s Glory to legendary feature films like Nacktschnecken. It has substantially influenced and enrichted the Austrian film scene.
His last film, together with Monika Willi, is a hommage to curiousity, to foreign and familiar impressions of the world, to people and movements. The texts narrated by Birgit Minichmayr and the impressive pictures reveal Glawogger’s extraordinary look on details and coincidental moments – he shows us people while dancing, working, and laughing – and thereof tells us more about our similarities than about the inscrutability of our differences.
