The Murder Trial of Sigmund Freud

Friday, May 9th, 2014
Freud (3)
THE MURDER TRIAL OF SIGMUND FREUD by the novelist BRENDA WEBSTER (Vienna Triangle, After Auschwitz: A Love Story) and IARPP member MERIDEE STEIN. Directed by Meridee Stein.

In 1919, one of Sigmund Freud’s most brilliant protégés, Viktor Tausk, died in a gruesome suicide. But who was really responsible for his death? Was it the act of a depressed young man looking for relief from his own internal demons? Or was he driven to his death by the manipulation of his mentor? In short – was it suicide or murder by mind?  The Murder Trial of Sigmund Freud explores the complicated and twisting internal landscape of this towering figure and creator of psychoanalysis.
