Film Screening: The Burning Child


Museum Lecture Hall

This is a past event

The Burning Child (2018, DCP, 112 min.) is a journey into the heart of Vienna. A study of the Viennese approach to interior design, built architecture, and Vienna's inspired denizens—such as Sigmund Freud, Gustav Klimt, and Ludwig Wittgenstein—the film explores a rich history through interviews and archival footage as the filmmaker attempts to solve the riddle of his grandparents' disappearance during the Holocaust. The film will be followed by a Q&A with the film's creator, Joseph Koerner.

Joseph Koerner is Victor S. Thomas Professor of the History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University.
