On tonight’s program we will pay tribute to Michael Haneke and Christoph Waltz, take a look at their filmographies leading to the Oscars, and view their triumphs in the light of Austrian Cinema’s development in recent years. Plus, our interview section features Fr. Mag. Sofia Weissenegger of the Österreichisches Volksliedwerk, who tells us about the organization’s projects particularly „Inter_Folk“, which promotes dialogue and exchange between Austrian and other cultures through folk music. And, as a tribute to the 85th Academy Awards, our playlist tonight features some of the most memorable theme songs ever composed for film.
