Sponsored by the by the Leon Levy Center for Biography and the CCNY English Department’s “Friday Forum,” Prof. Andrea Weiss will speak at the CUNY Graduate Center February 6.
Her talk will focus on differences between creating a film biography and a written biography and will include excerpts from my recent book "In the Shadow of the Magic Mountain: The Erika and Klaus Mann Story," which chronicles the adventures of the two eldest children of Thomas Mann.
She’ll also show clips from her documentary, "Escape to Life: Erika and Klaus Mann," a film portrait of these two rebellious and visionary free-spirits.
