Do what your neighbour dislikes
A portrait of painter Christian Ludwig Attersee, who refuses to sway with trends and fashions or bow to public opinion. Christian Ludwig Attersee is one of Austria's foremost artists, brilliant as a painter, stage designer, poet, performer, inventor of (everyday) objects and food designer. He is a musician and auteur, and he knows how to present himself.
What is behind the “Attersee" star role? For more than thirty years, director and producer Rudolf Klingohr accompanied Christian Ludwig Attersee with his camera. In his multi-facetted portrait, he shows the intimate side of the public artist, the beginnings of his creative drive, his scandals, his international breakthrough – the portrait of a career that is extraordinary in its unusualness.
A Film by Rudolf Klingohr & Sonja Hochecker.
