Through the Darkness

Directed by Hilan Warshaw
In co-production with ORF, for broadcast on ORF, SVT and YLE in autumn 2021

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 an upcoming documentary from Overtone Films telling the story of the relationship between composer Arnold Schönberg and painter Richard Gerstl. For broadcast in 2021, the 70th anniversary of Schönberg’s death.
