Biography

Michael Glawogger (1959-2014) was a director, writer and cinematographer and his work in each of these roles displays a broad spectrum. His recent works ranged from the literary adaptation KILL DADDY GOOD NIGHT (2009) and the quirky comedies SLUGS (2004) and CONTACT HIGH (2009) to his essayist documentaries MEGACITIES (2009) and WORKINGMAN'S DEATH (2004). He not only moved back and forth between cinematic forms and genres, but also between filmmaking, photography and writing - and between gentler and more forceful tones. With WHORE'S GLORY (2011) he completed his trilogy on the world of work. Glawogger died in 2014 whilst directing UNTITLED in Liberia, which was completed by Monika Willi in 2017.
