QPVH interviews Johannes Grenzfurthner about Masking Threshold

Great interview about Masking Threshold with Johannes Grenzfurthner on quepeliverehoy.es!

Durante el festival de Terrormolins 2021 pudimos entrevistar a Johannes Grenzfurthner, director, guionista, interprete y montador de la película ganadora de la sección Being Different: “Masking Threshold”.

Grenzfurthner cuenta con una larga trayectoria como cortometrajista y documentalista a sus espaldas. Pero más allá del cine, sus habilidades e intereses van desde el arte en todas sus vertientes, la ciencia o la política. Para poder aunar y dar forma a tamaño cumulo de inquietudes fundó el colectivo Monochrom en 1993. La creación de “Masking Threshold” nace de la unión de todos estos factores y es, además de una de las películas más únicas del año, es un muestrario de todo lo que conforma la figura del autor.

CVNC: Masking Threshold at Cucalorus

CVNC's Tanner Benson mentions Masking Threshold in his summary of Cucalorus Film Festival.

Perhaps more than the people in the audience, the diversity of material onscreen sets Cucalorus apart from other film festivals. In a single day, I saw a collection of short films made for children (Buttercup Shorts: Youth Finding Their Way, dir. various); a soapy morality tale about life as a Black teenager in Boston (Memoirs of a Black Girl, dir. Thato Rantao Mwosa); a gross-out philosophical deep-dive into a man's struggle with tinnitus, and his subsequent decent into madness (Masking Threshold, dir. Johannes Grenzfurthner); and a slow-burn, punk-metal horror film about a young woman who learns about her genealogical connections to magic and witchcraft (Hellbender, dir. The Adams Family).

Cinema Ad Hoc reviews Masking Threshold

More great reviews from Spain for Masking Threshold coming in!

Es una película difícil, cuesta seguirle el ritmo y conectar todo lo que sucede, es muy atrevida e innegablemente personal, porque aunque no sea nueva su intención de utilizar imágenes encadenadas que explicitan lo narrado (Chris Marker siempre en nuestros corazones), sí lo es su forma de torturar la mente de su personaje principal hasta llevar el interés a la obsesión, y de ahí al más puro caos. Este se desarrolla en un último acto rápido, crudo y explosivo que da una extraña sensación de alivio, pues el zumbido cesa, el mundo se silencia y la mente, la mía en particular, puede al fin descansar.

Interview with Johannes Grenzfurthner on TerrorWeekend

Great interview on TerrorWeekend!

¿Qué te hizo inspirar o cuál fue el motivo por el que elegiste hablar sobre un problema de audición? Me fijé en mí mismo porque cuando tenía 25 años sufrí un pitido continuo en los oídos de manera inexplicable durante 5 minutos, no sabía qué lo provocaba y me asustó realmente. Fue una experiencia corta en mi caso, pero he entrevistado a mucha gente que lo ha sufrido o lo sufre de manera intensa. Aunque en la película mi idea era hablar de alguien que está enfermo, y pensé que era una buena idea elegir esta dolencia porqué solo tú puedes saber que lo estás sufriendo, solo está en tu cabeza, los doctores no te creen, piensan que es algo psicológico, nadie puede saber si es verdadero o falso, solo el protagonista y eso me parecía una idea perfecta para desarrollar como punto de partida. Toda la historia es un poco como si fuera una historia de Lovecraft. Alguien que quiere llegar hasta el final del asunto y descubrir todo sobre su problema mientras se va obsesionando y volviéndose más loco cada vez.

Horror Buzz enjoyed Masking Threshold

Horror Buzz likes Masking Threshold! 7.5 out of 10!

Masking Threshold is a film that’s going to make you uncomfortable, and I mean really uncomfortable. It’s a film where everything, especially the visuals and audio, is amplified, due to the nameless protagonist’s obsession with sound. Despite the intentional discomfort, it’s an arresting watch, tracking one man’s descent into madness. You’re unlikely to see anything quite like Masking Threshold this year.

QPVH reviews Masking Threshold

Great review of Masking Threshold on quepeliverehoy.es! 4/5 stars!

Los principios del lenguaje cinematográfico dictaminan que el sonido debe ser siempre complemento de la imagen y no a la inversa. Pero, ¿qué ocurre cuándo es la imagen la que define el sonido?, ¿y si la existencia de una dependiera exclusivamente de la otra?, ¿puede o debe existir un lenguaje audiovisual en qué ambos canales vayan mucho más allá de la coexistencia?

Masking Threshold experimenta con estas premisas sobrepasando el mero recurso formal. Su utilización del lenguaje constituye la identidad sin la cual no podría permitirse existir. A su vez, su condición de tesis, tanto ficticia como real, la posicionan por encima de la convención sin limitarla a medios que, a priori, podrían casar mejor con su extremismo visual como son el videoclip e incluso el video arte. No señor, Masking Threshold no se deshace ni un segundo de su capacidad para fascinar de la forma más orgánica posible. No nos equivocábamos al elegirla como uno de los títulos imprescindibles de esta edición de Terrormolins.

Film Threat interviews Johannes Grenzfurthner

Thomas Kaestle interviewed Johannes Grenzfurthner about ''Masking Threshold'' for FILM THREAT.

Viennese filmmaker Johannes Grenzfurthner talks about his new film Masking Threshold – horror, disgust, suspense, the fascination of details, as well as the dark side of the nerd culture. With his new film Masking Threshold, Johannes Grenzfurthner does not simplify his audience's perception, which is a principle he already established three years ago with the crankily erratic and associatively lexical documentary Glossary of Broken Dreams. In this film, he deconstructed popular political buzzwords – to the benefit of all those who were willing to walk across discursive chasms on wavering theories. The horror drama Masking Threshold challenges thinking and viewing habits in different ways, even if it shares an unsettling appetite for formal experimentation with its predecessor – and a fear of looking down.

This time the audience embarks on a microscopic journey through objects on the writing and laboratory table of an unbalanced nerd. Grenzfurthner, the theory-loving provocateur roams the dark sides of biting into alternative perspectives. Socially decoupled attempts to explain the world under the pressure of suffering turn into horror in a genre film that plays with and breaks expectations, that takes alternative paths in terms of aesthetics and narrative style, and boldly combines its role models and sources of inspiration into something new.

Danni Winn of PopHorror interviewed Johannes Grenzfurthner about Masking Threshold!

This year’s Nightmares Film Festival continues in its tradition of bringing together exceptional examples of genre filmmaking, but one film in particular, Masking Threshold, stood out from the crowd, ultimately winning the prestigious Film From Hell honor. The latest from Austrian filmmaker Johannes Grenzfurthner, founder of monochrome—an art and theory group—Masking Threshold follows an intense and obsessive man battling an overwhelming case of tinnitus with homemade experiments that have horrific consequences.

We were excited to have Johannes answer some questions for us where he discusses his film, his studies, and a few of the movies that inspired him to create his own.

monochrom ist durchaus eine international agierende, in wien, graz und bamberg situierte kunstneigungsgruppe, seit etlichen jahren umtriebig, mit diversen volontariaten in zahlreichen realitäten: internationale kunstszene, apfelsortenzucht, powerpointoperetten, feldgottesdienste, beweisführungen, schirmherrschaften, soziale praxis, game- und schämshows, theorie, internet, dübel und schnittchen. v.a. das sammeln, gruppieren, registrieren und befragen (befreien?) von alltagskulturellen vernarbungen ist monochrom passion und quasi-ontologischer auftrag. kulturarchäologische grabungssondagen in ideologie- und unterhaltungsstätten. staatlich geprüftes rhizom. die schönheit der impliziten kaputtheit der selbstverständlichkeit ist anlass für phänomenologische wollust und (benutzer-)freundliche mikropolitische übernahmen. oder so.
