Michael Haneke in Conversation

Bold, uncompromising and at times, downright disturbing, the films of Michael Haneke have provoked much debate amongst scholars and audiences throughout his career. In this discussion, Haneke comments on his formative years in the Austrian television and theatre industries, what it is about film that impresses him most and the problems that he feels are plaguing mainstream cinema. Offering his own analysis of his previous and most recent works, Haneke invites the spectator to share in his vision of cinema, a cinema of open-ended precision that asks questions of both society and spectator.
