Year   2015
Minutes   93
Genre   Documentation Cinema
Assignment   Regisseur
Production   NGF Geyrhalterfilm
Releases   25.12.2015 Kinostart
Contents   "Everything´s Under Control" is an evocative film about the self-evidence of surveillance. Facebook, Amazon and Google provide us with around the clock access to the convinient digital world! Surveillance cameras on the streets take care of our security. But who actually collects our fingerprints, iris scans, online shopping preferences, and social media posting? Don´t we care about our privacy anymore? In his unique charming and curious way filmmaker Werner Boote travels around the world to explore the "brave new world" of total control.

FILM-DETAILS: Morgenland im Abendland

Subtitle   Josef Hader reist ins spanische Mittelalter
Year   2015
Minutes   52
Genre   Documentation TV
Assignment   Regisseur
Production   e&a film
Releases   07.04.2015 ORF
Contents   Auf den Spuren der Mauren: Seit vier Jahrzehnten nimmt in West- und Mitteleuropa durch Migration die Zahl jener MitbürgerInnen, die sich als Muslime bekennen, stetig zu. Seit etwa zwanzig Jahren gibt es hierzulande eine diffuse Angst vor Überfremdung oder gar Islamisierung. In der Dokumentation „Morgenland im Abendland“ schaut Josef Hader dorthin, wo es – zumindest in der Vergangenheit – weitgehend funktioniert hat. Die Reise führt ihn nach Andalusien, wo es zwischen 711 und 1492 muslimisch dominierte Reiche gab – wie das Kalifat von Cordoba und das Emirat von Granada. Neben bewaffneten Auseinandersetzungen existierte damals ein Jahrhunderte überdauernder Kulturaustausch und somit das friedliche Zusammenleben zwischen den drei Buchreligionen Judentum, Islam und Christentum: „La Convivencia“. "Morgenland im Abendland" bietet humorvolle Unterhaltung und eine Fülle von interessanten, historischen Tatsachen.

Year   2013
Minutes   90
Genre   Documentation Cinema
Production   NGF Geyrhalter Filmproduktion
Contents   A well-known nightmarish vision of the future: The Earth’s population reaches seven billion. Dwindling resources, mountains of toxic waste, hunger and climate change—the results of overpopulation? Who says that the world’s overpopulated? And who’s one too many? After the box-office success of “Plastic Planet,” in POPULATION BOOM curious documentary filmmaker Werner Boote travels the globe and examines a stubborn view of the world that has existed for decades. But he sees a completely different question: Who or what is driving this catastrophic vision?
