Inspired by a real-life shooting spree in Vienna on December 23, 1993, Hidden director Michael Haneke's 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance addresses the various societal influences and cultural factors that drive a young middle-class man to commit such an act.
Haneke traces the lead-up to the event in 71 tableaux, weaving television news footage of Michael Jackson and the wars in Somalia and the former Yugoslavia with snapshots of the lives of a Romanian street-kid, a pair of new parents, an adopting couple and the youth who will commit the crime, among others. Challenging narrative conventions with his mosaic approach, Haneke creates a compelling study of modern urban disquiet.
