This controversial film, tells the story of Florence Burnier-Bauer, who leads us through her abusive bourgeois childhood, her bohemian life on the road during the swinging sixties and finally her ghastly experiences at the Friedrichshof Commune, led by the Viennese actionist artist Otto Mühl.

One of the most idosyncratic projects in this program is without a doubt Paul Poet’s My Talk with Florence. In this minimalist interview film he tells the heartwrenching story of Florence Burnier-Bauer. Displaying an obstinate air of detachment, she leads us through her abusive bourgeois childhood, her bohemian life on the road during the swinging sixties and finally her ghastly experiences at the Friedrichshof Commune, led by the Viennese actionist artist Otto Mühl.

Mühls disgust for the nuclear family led to his radical and extreme regulations with regards to education, sex, labour and cohabitation. In 1991, partly due to Florences testimony, he was convicted of sexual offences and drugrelated crimes.
