Index Cinema: Valie Export’s “Invisible Adversaries”

On 19 June at 19:00 everyone was invited to attend the screening of Valie Export’s “Invisible Adversaries” (1976), who is a prominent representative of Viennese actionists. Valie Export’s controversial feature has been called a feminist Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Anna (Susanne Widl), a Viennese photographer, discovers that extra-terrestrial beings are colonizing the minds of her fellow citizens by raising the human aggression quotient. The outer world immediately becomes disjointed, but the inner world does too, as Anna and her love (Peter Weibel) try to hang onto their deteriorating relationship.
