Architects of Illusion

Architekten der Illusion

They created the fundaments of the architecture that define the world today. Quickly erected, functional, but representative and affordable - that was the motto with which Fellner & Helmer earned their trademark. Their architectural creations at the beginning of the 20th century correspond to a time of cultural uproar and strong request for theatre buildings in Europe. Noticing this cultural trend Fellner & Helmer became the trendsetters and global players of the «Gründerzeit». Their influences soon spread beyond the borders of the K & K Monarchy. All Theatre directors on the continent were dreaming of a theatrical stage that wore Fellner & Helmer's trademark. A myth was created. This documentary offers the viewer an insight of the life of this ex-ceptional architect-duo, whose buildings still form an important frame for the visual arts in Europe.
