VIENNA CALLING shows unknown facets of Viennese culture away from the mainstream. The result is an electrifying and poetic approach to the music and cultural scene of a European metropolis, where the current developments and conflicts of our time take place. The Viennese artists take the space they need. But this space is getting narrower and narrower…

VIENNA CALLING is not a music documentary in the classical sense and certainly not an Austropop history lesson, but an entertaining docu-musical. The protagonists of the film – including Der Nino aus Wien, Lydia Haider and Voodoo Jürgens – visibly enjoy playing. VIENNA CALLING offers them another cinematic stage, which they take with joy and perform with a lot of Viennese “Schmäh“.
