Thomas Bernhard - Three Days

One of Radax´s trademarks are his made-for-TV portraits of famous artists which alternate between documentation and interpretation, distance and embellishment. This early black-and-white portrait of Thomas Bernhard shows the writer sitting on a park bench, quiet and unapproachable, talking about childhood memories, loneliness and writing, and the final result was rather austere. The point-of-view alternates between a variety of distances, and the scene is occasionally interrupted by black frames which resemble a drooping eyelid. (Harry Tomicek)
