BUNDESPRÄSIDENT: BLAMIERT, BESCHÄDIGT? – ATV Documentary

A documentary for Austria’s ATV Television, where I worked as Camera Assistant to Cinematographer Nino Leitner.


 
During the race for the Austrian Presidency, private TV broadcaster ATV put the two final candidates against one one another in an unmoderated television debate – an experiment that hadn’t been executed since the 60’s.

The documentary deals with historical comparisons to that debate, as well as commenting on the journalistic and editorial merits of this presidential duel in which both candidates to the presidency lost their composure in front of a national television audience.
