Michael Glawogger's Globalization Trilogy
Like Werner Herzog, the Austrian filmmaker Michael Glawogger is a formal double-dipper. He's made both narratives (Slumming) and docs (State of the Nation) about his native Austria. But he's best known for the the three films in this series, including the mesmerizing Megacities (1998), an artful look at the underclass in Mexico City, Bombay, Moscow and New York. Glawogger employs a similar approach in Workingman's Death, which depicts manual labor at the beginning of the 21st century through the eyes of coal miners in the Ukraine, ship dismantlers in Pakistan, slaughterers in a Nigerian stockyard and sulfur harvesters on an Indonesian mountain. His latest feature, Whore's Glory, is a cinematic triptych on prostitution: three countries, three languages, three religions. Northwest Film forum welcomes Glowagger for a retrospective of his globalization trilogy. See web for show times and more information.
