Franz Kafka – Writer between the Worlds

1 x 48 min

Franz Kafka can hardly be introduced by means of a simple biography, but listing his works won’t do, either. That would be too cheap and too easy. Franz Kafka must be defined. Who is Franz Kafka? A few decades ago, this question would have been perfectly understandable. Until then, this literary figure, who is the most widely read German-language author, was largely unknown. Kafka, who came from a German-speaking, middle class, Jewish family, grew up in Prague, then part of the Habsburg Empire. The Franz Kafka, whose sufferings from his earliest childhood at the hands of his strict father had a fundamental effect on him. The documentary also shows how often Kafka is performed at the theatre. Even at a youth theatre, with 14-year-old actors.
