Alma. Amoroso Presto

Jiří Ort
director: Gabriela Ženatá

the story of the Viennese bohemians’ muse

The year is 1957 and a reporter from Austrian radio is encouraging a woman to look back over her life – something she has never wanted to do before. Her childhood and adolescence in the clearly ordered Austro-Hungarian monarchy, whose subsequent disintegration she witnessed as an adult. The great men she was fated to be with: Gustav Klimt, Gustav Mahler, Franz Werfel…

The real story of Alma Mahler-Werfel against the backdrop of an unreal age. An age of great triumphs in science and art, as well as the nightmare of two world wars, which made a New Yorker out of a woman who was Viennese body and soul.

She was supposedly an object of love and hate, admiration and scorn. But who was she when was not being an “object”?
