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.
Part I of the trilogy follows the central character Ferry Tobler as he joins German, Austrian and Czechoslovakian emigrants into the unknown from 1938 to 1941. Ferry is only 16 years old. His father was killed by the SS during the crystal night riots and he flees to Paris and Marseille where the dream of freedom and America seems within reach.
Austria, 1982, 110min, German with English subtitles, directed by Axel Corti
