Not only do personal experiences define how we perceive the world – common history has a relevant impact on us and our time: Boulevard’s End contrasts survivors of man-made catastrophes with their actual experience and life, told by themselves. Whilst in Rechnitz, referring to Elfriede Jelinek’s play of the same name, theatrical messengers have to take the place of history’s victims: they themselves did not survive to do so. Both films are strong pleas to the necessity of giving testimony, both do it in the best way possible: indirectly, evoking images and imagination.
