Sales company EastWest Filmdistribution has acquired worldwide rights to Worldrevolution According To Drahdiwaberl.

Klaus Hundsbichler's film looks at the life of Vienna-based punk musician Stefan Weber and his revolutionary band Drahdiwaberl, which has been together for almost 40 years.

Hundsbichler worked on the film for more than eight years. 'My most important decision was not to make a film for hardcore fans of Weber and Drahdiwaberl, but for people who have never even heard of them,' he said. 'The film will help people understand how this could only happen in Vienna.'

The film is showing here at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in the Sturm und Drang programme. It continues screening through Feb 2.

The film will also be screened at Berlin's European Film Market on Feb 13.
