Last year Austria's daily newspaper \"Der Standard\" invited Vienna-based author Ilse Aichinger to write short, flash-like comments about the festival's program. The writer responded with an astonishing daily \"scrapbook\" of entries. In her curious, associative and impartial approach to the various films, the passionate cinemagoer succeeded in creating a completely new form of reviewing, which is now known under the name \"Journal des Verschwindens\" (A Chronicle of Vanishing Moments) and has become a regular element in \"Der Standard\".

Ilse Aichinger's entries have been compiled in a book called \"Film und Verhängnis. Blitzlichter auf ein Leben\" (Film and Disaster: Flashlights on a Life) and will be presented at the VIENNALE festival in cooperation with \"Der Standard\".

At the book presentation which will take place shortly before the author's 80th birthday, Ilse Aichinger and the actor Otto Sander will read selected texts from the book. We welcome the opportunity to pay homage to this Austrian author and film-lover.
