Documentary by Klub Zwei (Austria): Simone Bader (director), Jo Schmeiser (director)
awarded with the Erasmus EuroMedia 2011 Medal of Excellence for Historical Narrative
The Medal of Excellence for a historical Narrative goes to the TV documentary “Liebe Geschichte”, produced and published by Klub2 – honouring the exceptional empathetic and sensitive approach to forefather’s history over family stories. This documentary has found a very charming method of re-assessing history by telling stories as personally experienced moments of histories over heartful connections to familial personalities from the past – but putting the narration in an contemporary environment, especially architectonic landscapes. This combines history with presence. Doing so the result in fact is a love story with at least two addressees: the forefathers and Vienna a the capital of Austria. Congratulation!
