27 Storeys – Alterlaa Forever

FromBianca Gleissinger



27 storeys, 10,000 people: The world-famous Alterlaa residential park in Vienna is considered an iconic monument to social utopia. The humorous debut documentary 27 STOREYS by Bianca Gleissinger is about Austria's largest social housing park and its former promise of happiness to its residents. The director returns to the place of her childhood and meets its quirky and amiable residents - in the shooting club, in the Freddy Quinn Museum or at the pool on the roof - and thus provides a deep insight into a social biotope. "Living like the rich for everyone" was the utopian premise of the architect with the sonorous name Harry Glück in 1970. But what is left of that pioneering spirit? This film is a witty, very personal approach to a special place and an examination of its own roots.
