    • Synopsis
    • DANUBE HOSPITAL, a portrait of one of Europe’s largest hospitals, shows the daily routines and work processes at a powerful and highly complex institution. By depicting a modern healthcare facility,
      DANUBE HOSPITAL holds a mirror to our society to show how it deals with health and illness, life and death.
      Nikolaus Geyrhalter observes what goes on in a variety of zones, in conference areas, ORs, patients’ rooms, the disinfection and pathology departments, and the kitchen. As the film visits all these areas, it follows an ingenious principle of a puzzle whose pieces produce an effect only when fully assembled.
      A portrait of an institution in which the relationships between processes that are invisible to patients and visitors are shown in all their precision.
