Austria on Film – Paths of Glory

Austrians have impacted filmmaking in the USA and abroad.  This lecture series will promote an understanding of Austrian culture and the historic relationship between our nations as reflected in the work of Austrian and Austrian-American filmmakers and films set there.  Participants will learn about the way directors and writers have impacted American culture with their contributions to our film industry and how their unique backgrounds influenced their art.

Week 1: The Fascination with Vienna in Film

Joseph W. Moser, Assistant Professor of German at West Chester University, will discuss the fascination with Vienna in films, starting with the post-WWII image of the city in The Third Man (1949), then analyzing the Cold War context in the 007 spy film The Living Daylights (1987) and finally examining the romance film Before Sunrise (1995), which is as much a romance film as a glorious film tour of Vienna, a city.
