The Horse Hospital

Colonnade,BloomsburyLondon WC1N 1JD


Forty years on from the all-too-early death of the great Austrian poet, novelist and dramatist Ingeborg Bachmann, a rare screening of her novel, adapted by Austrian Nobel prize-winner Elfriede Jelinek will take place at the Horse Hospital. The film, directed by legendary New German Cinema director Werner Schroeter, stars Isabelle Huppert, who gives a ferocious, stops-out performance as a philosophy professor driven mad by her love for two men in this incendiary plunge into desire, dissolution and death.

The screening will be accompanied by an introduction to Bachmann’s work and selected readings by invited guests.
