PHAIDROS d. Mara Mattuschka, 2018 (06 MAR 18:15) / Part of MARA MATTUSCHKA: DIFFERENT FACES OF AN ANTI-DIVA at Close-Up:

“You may have already seen Vienna by night, but you’ve certainly never seen it like in PHAIDROS. (…) In Mattuschka’s film (which won an award for best costume and production design at the Diagonale), queer birds of paradise, colourful self-promoters and untamed outsiders find each other and make the dark corners of the city glow. A delightful cinematic pleasure brushed against the grain!” – Florian Widegger
