Refugee Week at the BFI – Seniors’ Free Archive Matinee: Letter from an Unknown Woman

A big-screen classic, this romantic drama of obsession and betrayal is set in 1900’s Vienna. Considered true to its source – a story by one of the 20th century’s greatest writers, Stefan Zweig – the film was directed by Max Ophuls, a refugee from the Weimar Republic (he escaped first to France, then settled in the US). The story was adapted by blacklisted Hollywood writer Howard Koch.

Free for over-60s (booking by phone, 020 7928 3232, or in person only), otherwise normal matinee price.

With extended into from BFI programmer David Somerset.

In partnership with the British Film Institute.
