Vor der Morgenröte (Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe)

With actors Josef Hader and Barbara Sukowa.

This European coproduction chronicles the exile of Stefan Zweig, the Austrian Jewish author who fled Austria to Brazil in 1936. In South America, Zweig (Josef Hader) struggles to carve out his own nuanced perspective on Germany and the war, independently of the polarization of the political extremes. At the same time, his time in Brazil brings him into contact with a new world that will change his life and writing forever.
