The official Austrian entry for Foreign Language Feature at 2016 Oscars, Stefan Zweig: Farewell To Europe tells the story of the Austrian writer and his life in exile from 1936 to 1942. Zweig was one of the most famous writers of his time, but as a Jewish intellectual he struggled to find the right stance towards the events in Nazi Germany. Driven to emigrate to South America at the peak of his worldwide fame, Zweig fell into despair at the sight of Europe's downfall.

This visually stunning and emotionally powerful film explores what it means to be a refugee, and exposes the difficult decision to speak out or remain silent in the face of tyranny.

Critics' Pick! "Excellent. Hader's is one of the great performances of recent years."- Ali Arikan, The Village Voice

"Handsome...thoughtful. Zweig is played beautifully by Josef Hader; Barbara Sukowa is unsurprisingly great." - Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

"A Masterpiece." - Nina Rothe, The Huffington Post

"Beautifully captures the mysterious life of the once-famed author. Intellectually involving and strikingly made." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
