Transcoder (Understanding Lydia)

Austria, 1998 (MIFF 1998, Experimental)

Director: Sabine Hiebler, Gerhard Ertl

Taking an alternative and perhaps satirical look at the reputation of the traditional advertising image, Hiebler & Ertl dare to offer these often shunned images some credibility. Could they even be an accurate representation of daily life, at least as much as any others?
