Hundertwasser's comment on the work

On a rainy day, colours begin to glow; that's why a cloudy, rainy day is the kind I like best. That's the kind of day when I can work. When it rains, I'm happy. And when it rains, I know my day is beginning. (Film quotation)My first big documentary film, with the director Peter Schamoni, was nominated for an Oscar in the category documentary film and was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 1972. The co-producer was Anatole Dauman, Paris. There are German, English and French versions, and I narrated all three. The film was shot in my studio flat on Vienna's Graben, in Waldviertel, on the Giudecca in Venice and on the Regentag sailing in Dalmatian waters. It wasn't raining, so Schamoni passed before the camera with an opened umbrella; with the sound of rain dubbed in, the illusion that it was raining was perfect. In the film I complained that I had no opportunity to build anything, but this changed soon afterward. The film "Hundertwasser's Regentag" was distributed to the movie houses. My mother queued up at the box office to buy a ticket, just like anybody else. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 1006)
