John Cook Viennese by Choice, Filmemacher Von Beruf by Michael Omasta

Canadian-born filmmaker and photographer John Cook (1935-2001) was one the key figures in the Austrian New Wave of the 1970s. A maverick, Cook almost single-handedly introduced a type of freewheeling auteur cinema reminiscent of both Italian neorealism and the works of the French nouvelle vague. This volume offers a German-language section of essays, interviews, and an annotated filmography, and a brief autobiography by Cook in English.
