Viktor & I; An Alexander Vesely Film on Viktor Frankl

Friday, August 25 * 7:00 * $10 Admission.

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms–to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”  -Viktor Frankl

Dr. Viktor E. Frankl, author of “Man‘s Search for Meaning“: these words evoke a wide range of emotions in all who have ever come in touch with the man or his work. Termed “one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century“, Frankl showed that meaning can be found in life in spite of, if not because of unspeakable suffering. His outstanding contributions in the fields of psychiatry, psychology and neurology continue having a worldwide impact today.

Filmmaker Alexander Vesely, grandson of the late Dr. Frankl, traveled the world over to interview friends and colleagues to record their perspectives on how Viktor Frankl lived his theories. The result is this fascinating documentary, showing Frank as he was seen by students and peers, friends and relatives, acquaintances both professional and private. We can witness a variety of encounters and anecdotes from funny to profound, from sentimental to inspiring – but always full of insight into a most human, and humane, personality.

Making his U.S. directorial debut, noted Austrian filmmaker Alexander Vesely shares his most personal film yet, charting the life of his eminent grandfather, Viktor Frankl. Says Vesely, “Looking at Viktor through the eyes of his friends was a profound and fulfilling experience for me, and I am happy to share it with the world.“
