Did You Know?
Cannes is like an artistic clearing house. I think we were probably too much in shock at being in competition to realize the import of the festival. But there you are on the red carpet for all the world to see and this little film we made [The Edukators] makes people laugh and think regardless of where they come from. It was actually our first public screening, so the stakes were really high.
Parts of The Edukators
(2004) were filmed on his family's estate in the Austrian mountains.
