Looking back: Fundamental Rights Forum Vienna

A heartfelt Thank You to everyone contributing last weeks Fundamental Rights Forum, making it an exciting and thought provoking gathering. We were able to witness compelling screenings and discussions, as well as instructive workshops throughout the forum.

It was a pleasure to view and discuss the films EXIT and THE CLEANERS at Stadtkino with Filmmakers and discussion partners, sharing honest opinions and insightful information, supported by an engaged audience, willing to address and challenge these highly relevant issues.

Our Workshops Human Rights Film Festivals: Zooming into local realities with Andrea Kuh, Linda Llulla and Michael Schmied & Call2Action - exploring video storytelling techniques with Claudia Modonesi and Nick Danziger brought an enjoyable opportunity to elaborate on these subjects and to engage in-depht with experts in the field.

Delighted many of you took rime and interest in the Fundamental Rights Forum, we are looking forward to future encounters with all partners and participants!

Q&A with Martin Habacher after the screening

Mabacher #unbroken
by Stefan Wolner
Documentary AUT, 2017
80 min OmeU

This human world is happy to announce that Mabacher #unbroken was awarded with the audience award 2017! We are looking forward to another screening at Schikaneder and an interesting discussion!

Martin Mabacher does not understand why many call him a role model, when in his opinion all he does is what everyone else does. He meets people in their day-to-day life. He reaches thousands of viewers through his YouTube Channel daily. For example, there he self-mockingly explores how accessible Vienna is for people with reduced mobility. With this in mind the film portrays the daily life of an incredibly confident person with brittle bone disease who has both feet firmly on the ground. It is an encounter at eye level since it becomes obvious: barriers can be overcome.

This film is a portrait of the confident and self-mocking Martin Mabacher. He inspiringly shows that barriers can be overcome, not only for people with reduced mobility, but also in one’s own surroundings. An encounter at eye level.
