Stefan Zweig Season

Tuesday 4 July 2017, 7.00pm | Austrian Cultural Forum London

Zweig was heavily influenced by the work of Sigmund Freud when he wrote Der Amokläufer in 1922. The film from 1944 tells the story of a doctor who flees to a rural region of India following bankruptcy. There, he tries to mitigate the onslaught of a disease the locals call ‘Amok,’ while his past mistakes still plague him.

Mexico, 1944, 106 mins, Spanish with English subtitles, directed by Antonio Momplet
