The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle, 1974)
Fates from the density of new German cinema
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
The pivotal directors of what is known as new German film were Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Wim Wenders, Volker Schlöndorff and Werner Herzog. Regularly appearing in Herzog's films are fairy tales, beliefs and legends. Oh, and also the idea of obsession. If this film were to turn up on a streaming platform, it would certainly be labelled as being "based on a true story”, since Kaspar Hauser (1812-1833) actually existed, and the matter of his identity continues to preoccupy scholars and journalists alike, as it has also been suggested that the boy, who was held captive in a pit for 12 years, might have been a descendant of a grand ducal family.
In German, with Hungarian subtitles.
The discussions before and after the screening will be conducted in Hungarian.
