Stefan Zweig - A Farewell to Europe (Vor der Morgenröte)

Austria's selection for KW's 2017 German Language Film Festival. A Co-presentation by University of Waterloo Centre for German Studies and the Princess Cinemas. Sponsored by the Embassies of Austria, the Federal Republic of Germany, and Switzerland.

"'Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe' chronicles the years of exile in the life of one of the most celebrated Austrian authors of the 20th century. Rising to prominence at a time when Nazism was gaining a foothold across Europe, Stefan Zweig made the decision to leave his beloved homeland. As Jewish Austrian, his action is one that leaves him forever conflicted. He tries to find his place in the Americas, living for extended periods in Brazil, Argentina and the United States. But as he wrestles with the decline of European society, he still bears a hopeful affinity for the German people, unable to make a public condemnation of Hitler. The mixed emotions will haunt him forever, as external and internal pressures threaten to overwhelm him." - Awards Circuit
