Josef Dabernig — Brno, Vienna and family
Josef Dabernig graduated from sculpting at the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna in 1981. He encountered filmmaking relatively late, in 1996. It is possible, that because of this, however, he did not arrive at the scene of short film as filmmaker only, but as a well-rounded artist, who used his sculpting and architectonic skills in photography and text. He still works in Vienna, which is only a stone’s throw away from Brno. Because of this his films often take place around Brno, e.g. in Adamov or Dolní Kounice. He also makes his films with his family and a close circle of friends, which he depicts with both naturalistic strictness and love.
