Burgenland is Everywhere

Burgenland is Everywhere
Comedy Mockumentary


Researcher Thomas is on a documentary journey through the mountains and valleys of Austria, commissioned by Storch TV, a local broadcaster funded by the Mayor of Stanitz. What he discovers is unbelievable: people from his village and others in the region of Burgenland, the easternmost province of Austria, have left cultural traces everywhere in the whole world and in Austria.

Burgenland is Everywhere is a local history documentary about Austria with a very odd angle. Cabaret newcomers like Thomas Stipsitz, Klaus Eckel, Pepi Hopf, and Katharina Schraml prove that parody and folklore can be a highly entertaining combination.
