SPY CAPITAL FILM (Documentary)
“It’s not all waltz and schnitzel”
Spy Capital announced today that it is raising funds via a rewards crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to finish the production of their documentary film. The company set out to raise €50,000 on Indiegogo to finish production and release the film.
The documentary supports and illustrates a popular assertion that Vienna, the Austrian capital, has been playing a role of a true world spy capital for the last hundred years and more. The script covers the period from 1910 starting with the (in)famous espionage case of Colonel Alfred Redl, who rose to head the counterintelligence department of the General Staff of the Austro-Hungarian Army at the same time being a ‘mole’ spying for the Russians. When uncovered, Redl committed suicide in May 1913. The film ends with the 2010 exchange in the Vienna International airport of the group of ten Russian agents who had operated in the United States to four Western intelligence assets imprisoned in Russia, including Colonel Sergey Skripal, a double agent who had worked for both the Russian military intelligence and the British Secret Service (SIS or MI6). Nine spy episodes are presented in the film.
The Living Daylights, a 1987 James Bond movie featuring the Austrian capital - may be a valuable historical record, but espionage is a serious business and is very much a reality in today's Austria, as our film shows. https://igg.me/at/spycapitalfilm/x/25250660#/
