Original Title: Fang den Haider
Dead in a car crash in 2008, Jörg Haider, former leader of Austria’s Freedom Party, was the first in Europe to bring a far right populist party to power. CATCHING HAIDER is a subjective voyage in Haider’s political, geographical, familial, and emotional world, seeking to glimpse the real person behind Haider’s  contradictory personas, his goals, and his strategies, and finally identifying the illusionary and deceptive  methods of populist politics which have since spread all over Europe. (2015)
