Pop, Politik, Gesellschaft; wir können über alles reden! Und das in der Gesamtlänge, also (fast) ungeschnitten. Hier kann es schon Mal zur Sache gehen: schwitzende Reporter*innen, um keine Ausrede verlegene Interviewpartner*innen, aber auch entspannte, oder lustige Situationen, in denen Interessantes und Überraschendes besprochen wird.
FM4 Interview with Documentarian and Producer Nikolaus Geyrhalter
The cinemas are closed, but Austrian directors are busy working on their next films.
The outstandig documentarian und producer Nikolaus Geyrhalter has shown us the world in his movies until now: He has taken us to completely abandoned places in Japan as well as into the Bosnian mountains. He has spoken to men who literally move mountains for his latest documentary "Earth" and he’s been a guest of indigenous people on their homelands far, far away.
Now, Nikolaus Geyrhalter is at home in Austria, working on a film about the corona crisis: “Stillstand” is the working title of the movie.
In an interview with Maria Motter, Nikolaus Geyrhalter explains, that he originally had planned to do something completely different, far away from Austria.
FM4 Interview with an Activist In Minsk, Belarus
Last week marked 100 days of protests in Belarus. Since a disputed presidential election back in August which incumbent Alexander Lukashenko claims to have won, mass protests have been held in the nation’s capital of Minsk and those protests have been met with police violence.
Just one week ago, thousands of people rallied following the death of an opposition supporter. There have been unconfirmed reports of many other protester deaths at the hands of the police and what is definitely confirmed is the detainment of more than 17 000 demonstrators.
These are precarious times to speak up against Lukashenko in the country.
Under the promise of anonymity, Riem Higazi managed to speak with an activist in Minsk and Riem asked her about the thugs carrying out the violence against the protesters, about protest cult figure Nina Baginskaya, about in exile opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya but her first question was: how are you?
FM4 Interview with Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard
Sie sind rekordverdächtig: King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard haben in ihrer 10-jährigen Bandgeschichte bereits 16 Studioalben veröffentlicht – fünf davon allein im Jahr 2017. Die Musik der Australier ist dabei so aufregend wie ihre Veröffentlichungsgeschichte: Psychedelic Rock, Jazz, freie Improvisation, Folk, atonale Musik und auch Heavy Metal sind die Zutaten ihrer Alben. „K.G.“ lautet nun der Titel des neuen King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard-Werkes. Sänger und Gitarrist Stu Mackenzie hat Christian Lehner via Zoom erklärt, dass es sich beim neuen Album um eine Art Überblickswerk in den Farben des Regenbogens handelt.
FM4 Interview mit Yoga Instructor und Sexualpädagogin Sophie Humer
In Yoga you see new trends almost every week, most of which are mere marketing tools. Another one of those trends is using a vibrator while practicing Yoga. This is promoted under the buzzword of “mindful masturbation”. Is this a good combination or not? That’s what FM4’s Conny Lee asked Sophie Humer, who is a Yoga instructor and also a sex pedagogue, working at the Museum for contraception in Vienna. They talked about Yoga and Masturbation, about the use of vibrators and mindfulness and about different kinds of orgasms.
FM4 Interview with Billie Winner-Davis (Mom of Reality Winner)
In the summer of 2017, the then 25-year-old government contractor exposed detailed evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Reality Winner printed out classified U.S. Intelligence documents, hid the papers in her pantyhose as she left work and then put them in the mail to The Intercept, an online new publication dedicated to what it calles 'adversarial journalism'.
The report they published was the first piece of concrete evidence shared with the public proving that the United States possessed tangible evidence that Russians hackers attacked American voting systems.
After The Intercept published the story, authorities immediately traced the leak back to Reality Winner. She was arrested, denied bail and is now serving five years in a federal prison.
Riem Higazi spoke to her Mom Billie Winner- Davis about her daughter and about her unique perspective on the Trump Administration...so far...
