"Westerns, in fact, are those films, where people are missing their lives, the women are waiting and the men are roaming around and eventually it is too late."
(Wim Wenders)

An impressive intro, yes. If it'd be autumn, already. But it isn't. It's late summer. And the latter impresses with its evening light just as much as it does with Palais Donaustadt ( Picture dead smart performance theory & practise wizes inviting a few dead brilliant dancers in order to do some dead expansive space research on a dead vast concrete construction area together with a bunch of dead hip & able electronic musicians, dead fanciful reflectionists as well as a few miles of dead stunning film footage, one September long.

But certainly seeing "Bliss Like This" with Ani:

"I said Venice
