This is the story of two outsiders. Each was a rebel, a visionary in his field. They were drawn together by passion for their art— and for the same woman. Their meeting drove one of them to his death, and forever changed the course of musical history.
THROUGH THE DARKNESS is a documentary from Overtone Films telling the story of the relationship between composer Arnold Schoenberg and painter Richard Gerstl. First broadcast ORF in December 2021 to mark the 70th anniversary of Schoenberg’s death.
