Preview Screening: The Burning Child

Joseph Leo Koerner

During his UC Berkeley visit, Professor Joseph Leo Koerner hosts a test screening of his film The Burning Child (2017, 120 mins). Through interviews, testimony, and archival footage, the film explores Koerner's return to Vienna, the birthplace of his father, painter Henry Koerner, and is a meditation on the concepts of home and homemaking that emerged amidst the turbulence of 20th-century Vienna.

Q+A moderated by Associate Professor of Rhetoric Winnie Wong.
