Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote over the course of a lifetime and re-crafted a 200-year-old play along the way….What is its relevance today?
Joseph McGarry’s film GOETHE’S FAUST is a hugely detailed dissertation on the life and work of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe with a focus on his historically acclaimed re-penning and rendering of Faust; a tragedy in two parts.
As writer, director, and host, McGarry has created an extensive study that will serve as a literary and philosophical reference for students of literature forever. More importantly, the film brings the historical writings into a contemporary framework.
Filmed entirely on location in Colorado, McGarry’s narrative study draws comparisons to nature and many of the themes contained within Goethe’s writings.
• A visual dissertation about one of history’s greatest pieces of literature
• Ties into the history of the Holy Roman Empire and the German language
