A film by Günter Schwaiger | 2023

The documentary film BRAUNAU (working title) accompanies the controversial architectural transformation of Adolf Hitler’s birthplace into a police station in the form of a long-term observation. The result is a portrait of a small town on the Austrian-German border which, despite all the usual prejudices, stigmata and clichés, is exemplary in Austria due to its decades-long history of dealing with the National Socialist legacy.
