As part of our series Exile in Film, the prize-winning documentary Out of Exile presents the life and work of the photographer Fred Stein. In 1933, he fled the Nazis to Paris and then to the United States. After receiving a Leica as a wedding present, he became a pioneer of 35mm photography. His street scenes, but especially his portrait photographs, would later become world famous, in particular those of German exiles such as Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt, or Bertolt Brecht.
For the subsequent discussion of the film, Peter Stein, the son of the photographer and director of the film, will be our guest.
