Fear (Angst)

Stefan Zweig Season

Thursday 1 June 2017, 7.00pm | Austrian Cultural Forum London

Fear, directed by Roberto Rossellini and starring his wife Ingrid Bergman, is loosely based on the Stefan Zweig novel of the same name. Rossellini wanted to explore the reconstruction of Germany from both a material and moral standpoint ten years following his film Germany Year Zero. The film is noirish with aspects reminiscent of Hitchcock and German Expressionism.

This screening is part of Cineclub's Stefan Zweig Season in which we screen films based on and/or inspired by the works of Austrian author Stefan Zweig.

Italy / Germany, 1954, 82min, German with English subtitles, directed by Roberto Rossellini
