Ernst Schmidt jr.
In the past 1,5 year, the Austrian Film Museum worked together with Haghefilm Digitaal to scan in 2K all 76 films made by the Austrian avant-garde filmmaker Ernst Schmidt jr.
„VALIE EXPORT leads Peter Weibel on a leash, still from: Women’s power, 1973, Ernst Schmidt jr.“

We are very happy with the end result of this project. Although a digital image is something entirely different than an analogue film image, and we cannot and do not want to conceal any digital intervention, we managed to represent the original filmic characteristics and image in the best possible way.”
