THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 8.00 p.m.
FILMZENTRUM IM RECHBAUERKINO / RECHBAUERSTRASSE &, 8010 GRAZ / AUSTRIA

PRESENTATION 'ANGER DIARY 2: WIRED WORLDS'

Well, if you think this world is is weird, you ought to see some of the other ones ! (Philip K. Dick)

Nobody knows better than graphic novelist, director, illustrator etc. Joerg Vogeltanz, born in 1968 in graz/austria as well as academic of literary and film/cinema-studies and awarded writer Thomas Ballhausen, born 1975 in vienna/austria, both sure-footed wanderers in the fields of gloomy anti-worlds, proudly presented the long desired part 2 of the anger diaries' first trilogy , "wired worlds" and made the most of the evening by including an on-stage-discussion, moderated by 'falter'-magazine styria editor-in-chief thomas wolkinger and, subsequently, showed a more than just fitting cineastic piece of art from the uk (THE NINE LIVES OF TOMAS KATZ) which completed the vespertine psychological de-programming of the audience.

Here are some photographical impressions of the evening (click2enlarge!):
