Sweet Sweet (1997) 16mm, color, 3 min

A love story, with dreamy images focusing on his partner, the family, and travel in Florida; tactfully placed details both naive and dutiful, all the while Hank Williams sings "I'm so lonely I could cry", as the soundtrack.

Frauenmuskel (2001) 16mm, color, 6 min

"Frauenmuskel is a jarring and sexually explicit film. Yet, the film holds an important dual sense of mystery that haunts long and after the film is over. Filmed during the Hermann Nitsch action of 1998, the film covers a stroll through the countryside as well as nightly impressions of the stars and clouds above Hermann Nitsch, himself" -Christopher May

Hot Dog Party (2001) 16mm, b&w, 1 min

The film is an emphatic contemplation of the things which surround us. Its vision of this surrounding world is always self-referential and solipsistic, yet is however still able to involve us in its joie de vivre. His images are completely without irony. He observes in a detached way. The film is also a brief reference to the filmmaker's need to create: to create food in the kitchen, create images, create a child. Biesendorfer playing golf, his wife undressed, his daughters, brief everyday scenes and a number of insignificant out of context observations: the filmmaker stuffs them all into a party, the "Hot Dog Party" of the title, during which he also records the soundtrack of the film.

Little B and MBT (2004) 16mm, color, 30 min

The soundtrack is made from Biesendorfer's recordings of voices, discussions and sounds surrounding a recent Herman Nitsch action in Austria. The images, consisting primarily of special and intimate moments of his wife and children, intertwine with the audio in strange and ambiguos ways. The film battles itself in order to cancel itself out, but the conflict remains circular and supercedes both the audio and visual, in a place beyond the material and physical.
