Bridge To Monticello

Directed by Michael Pilz
1998    1h 49m
Film that was made in 1996 during Pilz's stay in the USA, where he spent time visiting the Austrian painter and emigrant Josef Schützenhöfer. During his, Schützenhöfer showed Pilz the crumbling surroundings of Monticello, the former residence of President Thomas Jefferson, where the land hasn’t been cultivated for years and the former traditional crafts are gradually losing its fight to unequal competition with multinational companies. The film explores the persistent problems of the North American lifestyle, including disrespect for one's own homeland and its history, and the negligent treatment of nature and the landscape.
