MARIE ALICE WOLFSZAHN is a film director, scriptwriter and multimedia artist with education in film (Edinburgh College of Art, EICAR Paris) and sculpture (University of Applied Arts Vienna). She then lived in Berlin, Moscow and Prague; currently she has chosen her hometown Vienna as her base.
"My focus lies in exploring the grey zone between reality & fiction – both in my work and in life. I’m pedantic when it comes to details, I love to build things, I enjoy finding quick solutions and I’m a good listener. My interests and skill set are infinite in their diversity – existence is too brief to be hiding in one drawer."
Delving into the manifold dimensions that lie beyond here & now, between truth & myth, beneath relative & absolute defines her artistic work: time(lessness), utopia/dystopia, ideology and faith are recurring themes of her documentary, experimental and narrative films, as well as her light and art installations.
Her 360° experience BRIDGE TO SOVIETOPIA was on the festival circuit last year; a cinema adaptation SOVIETOPIA is in preparation; the narrative feature MOTHER SUPERIOR is to be released in 2022 and marks her directorial debut.
