Johann LURF

(1982- )
Nationality: austrian

Johann Lurf (born in 1982) was educated as a film director at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Austria. He is known as an experimental filmmaker who cannot easily be subsumed under one style or category. His films examine various modes of (both human and technologically-aided) vision and motion, but his more formally-oriented filmic experiments are always accompanied by strong narratives that, however subtly, examine society, codes, norms, perception, and the history and development of cinema itself. Dabbling in short and feature-length films, analog and digital film, found-footage and his own shots, Lurf has made a wide variety of cinematic works, many of which have been featured in international film festivals and cultural institutions, notably the Sundance Film Festival and the Austrian Film Museum.
