Austrian author Stefan Zweig was a cosmopolitan, a pacifist and a bonafide literary star. A contemporary of Freud, Dali and Theodore Herzl, he was, for a time, the most-translated writer in Europe.
Foreseeing Europe’s decline at an early stage, Zweig left his native country in 1934, never to return from exile. Distracted, and emotionally and financially depleted by his wanderings, Zweig and his second young wife, Lotte, moved between Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, New York, and Petrópolis; all the while trying to make sense of the state of the world, and his own personal existence. From German Director Maria Schrader (In Darkness), this timely drama powerfully recounts Zweig’s final years in exile. Premiered at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival in the Piazza Grande section.
