Film - Under the Alsergrund. Servitengasse 1938

Synopsis "Wanting to know what happpend"

Citizens of the Vienna's 9th district are confronted with the history of their street. Documentary film-makers from the Vienna Film Academy accompany their search for the past of the place they live in. A generation no longer shaped by the experiences of war is looking for a "counter narrative" to the story it has been told, making visible the "blind spots" and becoming aware of what is missing.
