EUROSTAR: A ROADMOVIE AS A CHAMBER PLAY

FRIDAY, OCT 09 2020, - MONDAY, NOV 30 2020

Authors Stefan Zweig (1881 – 1942) and Joseph Roth (1894 – 1939) return as ghosts to the Europe of 2020. They accompany a literary scholar and her trainee during a research trip on a train journey from Vienna to London.

Between tragedy and comedy their attempts oscillate to position themselves on current developments in Europe. This causes affection and rejection, from which changing alliances and unbridgeable differences emerge.

Everything is in a state of change: Europe through which they travel, the relationships they have with each other, and their self-reference.

This world premiere of the English language adaptation will be exclusively available on the ACFNY website and YouTube Channel on October 9 at 2PM EDT.

Cast: Yarina Gurtner, Stephanie Schmiderer, Alexander Fennon, Vitus Wieser

Cinematography: Philipp Karner

Directed by Stephanie Schmiderer

US Adaptation and Translation: Stephanie Schmiderer
