My Talk with Florence


Paul Poet Film Director, Author, Curator

  • Added 8 years ago to OS XIV 2016

    A minimalist interview-film, dealing with one of the most disturbing life-stories of the 20th Century.

    Florence fled from the sexual and psychological abuse by her post-war bourgeois home into a vagabond life of crime and freedom.

    She ended up in the Austrian counterculture community Friedrichshof, led by the infamous Vienna Actionism-Artist Otto Mühl, where her own children were subsequently taken away and the cycle of violence and mistreatment continued.

    This is the narrative of a woman who needed 50 years to learn to say No.

    An oral history about abuse, resistance and survival.

    Compared by critics to Karmakar, Lantzmann, Lars von Trier and Pasolini.
