Kenia Bernal Gonzalez high above the castle Belvedere, Vienna



Director Werner Boote created this wonderful portrait of the city of Vienna, its people, “The Philharmonics” and their music. The idea of people floating in the air – lifted by the spirits of music – came to him while looking at a painting of René Magritte, “Golconde”.

Take a look how SCARY the shooting of this film was!



A crane brings actress Kenia Bernal Gonzalez high up to the sky.

In the final film you of course do not see the wires. They have been removed by Ralf Ricker


Most of the shots have been filmed on original location. But sometimes we did not get the permission to film with the heavy cranes in front of historical buildings or our cranes could not lift the actors high enough. That´s why we had to do additional shooting in the studio with green screen.
