Auditorium, King's College Conference Centre
Join renowned Austrian filmmaker Ruth Beckermann for a screening of her award-winning film The Waldheim Waltz (2018), followed by a Q&A.
Beckermann has called The Waldheim Waltz (Berlin International Film Festival 2018 Glashütte Original Documentary Award; 2019 Austrian Film Prize for Best Documentary Film) 'a film about truth and lies or "alternative facts"'. The film focuses on the international scandal sparked in the late 1980s by former UN Secretary General and Austrian president Kurt Waldheim’s deception about his Nazi past.
Hosted by the VIEW programme of the George Washington Wilson Centre for Visual Culture, with the generous support of the Austrian Cultural Forum London and the Ingeborg Bachmann Centre at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, London.
