Franz Mulec (1932–2001) was a dancer and actor by profession, working at the Raimund Theater in Vienna, among other venues. In his spare time, he made films with his friends and was a member of the cine club Klub der Kinoamateure Österreichs (KdKÖ). His films are characterized by vibrant colors and opulence due to both the recurring nature and flower motifs as well as the rollicking parties and frivolous merrymaking that they document and stage. The pure joy of life and a love for people are at the center of his films.
