It’s cold and gray. Wintertime. People are freezing. That’s how it is here in Austria. That’s how it is there in the Ukraine. Two different worlds that are increasingly coming to resemble each other. The East looks like the West, the West like the East.


Ulrich Seidl born 1952, lives in Vienna, Austria. His work methods, achieving the greatest possible authenticity and showing people in the most solitary and personal moments, has aroused intense debate. IMPORT EXPORT is the first film that Seidl has also produced.
