    "I always see the characters in contrast to their task, their obligation. I have a strong sense of these characters like in a game of chess, what’s their role in this process?"

    Jessica Hausner was born in Vienna, Austria. She studied directing at the Filmakademie of Vienna, where in 1996 she made the short film FLORA, which won the Léopard de Demain at the Locarno Festival. INTER-VIEW, her graduation film, won the Prix du Jury of the Cinéfondation at the Cannes Film Festival in 1999. Two years later, LOVELY RITA, her first feature film, was presented in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes FF. Her second feature HOTEL was again selected for Cannes FF, and won the Grand Prix for the Best Austrian Feature at the Diagonale 2005. In 2009 she went on to make the multiple prize-winning feature LOURDES. Her most recent feature, AMOUR FOU has taken part in both Cannes and Toronto IFF. Her last feature LITTLE JOE will premiere in Cannes, in the Official Selection.
