born in Linz (Upper Austria), 1940
SYNOPSIS:
Anna, a photographer and video reporter, is awakened one morning by the radio which is broadcasting the warning that an invisable strange power is about to conquer the earth by taking on the form of human beings and then changing their state of consciousness. The goal of the unknown rulers, Hyksos, is the destruction of the earth. Furthermore, everybody could already be under the influence of the Hyksos and thus deny what has happened. "...Destruction of the environment and the inner world, inhumanity, aggression, increasing alienation among people, existence bereft of content. Valie Export presents this psychopanoptic view of the present in solid, striking images and often in unexpected humourous passages..." (Peter Hajek in the "Kurier", 28.10.1977)
