The directors on realeyz.tv stand for originality, individuality and quality in all formats and genres, whether Maren Ade and Francois Ozon, or Michael Haneke, Marjane Satrapi or Park Chan-Wook. Some directors are recognizable by their distinctive style: Michael Haneke's films are formally austere and deal and employ recurring devises and themes. Haneke often works with the same actors (Isabelle Huppert, Ulrich Mühe, Juliette Binoche). On the other hand, the film works of François Ozon are often about strong women (5x2) or characters at a turning point in their lives (TIME TO LEAVE). On realeyz.tv you can always find fresh, unconventional and piercing perspectives on gender relations, media and pop culture as, for example, in the daring shorts by Bulgarian-Austrian artist Mara Mattuschka (BALLHEAD). Other highlights include documentary filmmakers Kim Longinotto (England) and Michael Glawogger (Austria), who travel the world to bring us breathtaking stories and imagery. Longinotto concentrates on issues affecting girls and women, with an emphasis on those possessing an unwavering commitment to equality and justice. Glawogger has the unique ability to visualize complex and abstract themes such as global labor and urban living and bring them with fresh energy to the screen. The German docs specialist Thomas Heise devotes his work to themes combing historical events with their political contexts (FATHERLAND), while the Danish director Ole Bornedal (JUST ANOTHER LOVE STORY) delves to the depths of the horror and fantasy genres. And finally, as far as the master director of the Far East, the Korean director Park Chan-Wook (THIRST) is concerned, no human feeling is too intense or too strange: whether love, despair or revenge.
