With the last My View tour we say goodbye to the „shadow citizens“: The artist and filmmaker Johannes Gierlinger talks about Želimir Žilnik’s documentary strategies and narrative techniques and how they inspired his own filmmaking practice.

My View is a series of tours in which experts, amateurs, and interesting people are invited to present their personal view of the exhibition.

Kunsthalle Wien`s exhibition „Shadow Citizens“ offers an insight into the radical film praxis and extensive œuvre of filmmaker Želimir Žilnik (b. 1942, lives and works in Novi Sad, Serbia) within an exhibition context.
From his beginnings in the lively amateur film scene of Yugoslavia in the 1960s, Žilnik has gone on to make more than fifty films, including a number of feature films and TV productions, often in the genre of docudrama. He received international recognition early on, winning the Golden Bear for the Best Film at the 1969 Berlin International Film Festival for Early Works.
