"I want to give a view of the world that can only emerge by not pursuing any particular theme, by refraining from passing judgment, proceeding without aim. Drifting with no direction except one’s own curiosity and intuition.” Michael Glawogger

After the sudden death of Michael Glawogger in April 2014, his longstanding collaborator and editor Monika Willi realizes a film out of the footage Glawogger shot over the course of 4 months and 19 days in the Balkans, Italy, North and West Africa. A journey out into the world with open eyes and open mind - observing, listening, experiencing. Serendipity is the concept and the only rule to apply - in editing and creating the film just as it was in shooting it. Narrated by Fiona Shaw.

Michael Glawogger was born in Graz, Austria, on December 3, 1959. After graduating from high school he studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and the Vienna Film Academy. He began his career as an assistant camera operator, later working as cinematographer, and finally as screenwriter and director. Between 1981 and 2013 he made numerous internationally acclaimed shorts, documentaries, and feature films. In recent years he had also devoted himself to literary writing. His novel “69 Hotelzimmer” was published posthumously. Michael Glawogger died in Monrovia, Liberia, in April 2014 while shooting UNTITLED. His premature death interrupted collaboration on a number of feature film projects, among others with writers such as William T. Vollmann, Michael Ostrowski, Eva Menasse, and Sybille Berg.

Monika Willi, born in Innsbruck, Austria, on May 29, 1968, is an Austrian film editor known for her many years of collaboration with Michael Glawogger (e.g. FRANCE, HERE WE COME!, WORKINGMAN'S DEATH, CONTACT HIGH, WHORES' GLORY) and Michael Haneke (e.g. THE PIANO TEACHER, TIME OF THE WOLF, THE WHITE RIBBON, AMOUR, HAPPY END). She has also worked regularly with Barbara Albert (NORTHERN SKIRTS, FREE RADICALS) and Florian Flicker (SUZIE WASHINGTON, HOLD-UP).

Monika Willi has received many awards and nominations for her work: She was nominated for the Austrian Film Prize for WHORES' GLORY (Michael Glawogger, 2011) and the German Film Prize for THE WHITE RIBBON (Michael Haneke, 2010). In 2012 she was nominated for the César Award for her work on Michael Haneke’s film AMOUR. She received the Austrian Film Prize (Best Film Editing) for Barbara Albert’s THE DEAD AND THE LIVING (2012) and the Filmplus Award for Best Feature Film Editing for Haneke’s THE WHITE RIBBON (2009) as well as for Barbara Eder’s THANK YOU FOR BOMBING (2016).

UNTITLED is Monika Willi’s co-directing debut.
