Due to unforseen circumstances this event has been postponed to 14 December. We regret any inconvenience.
To mark the centenary of Austrian filmmaker, screenwriter and director Georg Stefan Troller the ACF's CineClub will screen the celebrated trilogy Wohin und Zurück leading up to a special screening of a documentary about the man himself.
The trilogy, written by Troller and directed by Axel Corti, is based on Troller's own experiences fleeing the Nazis and returning to Europe as an American soldier to liberate Dachau concentration camp. After the war he eventually settled in Paris where he worked as a journalist and filmmaker.
The final film in the trilogy follows Freddy Wolff and George Adler, Viennese Jews who emigrated to the USA in 1938 and as members of the US army were sent back to Western Europe in 1945. Freddy eventually returns to his home town Vienna where he struggles to reintegrate.
We are pleased to announce that we will conclude this centenary celebration with a screening of the recently released documentary Interpretation of Reality – Georg Stefan Troller by Ruth Reiser on 2. December 2021 followed by a seasonal reception.
