The Burning Child is a film journey into Vienna's interior architecture, beneath its foundations. It is the space of the psyche mapped in Vienna. From around 1900, when it became Central Europe's capital, to the present day, Vienna has inspired fateful dreams of home. Its famous denizens-Freud, Wittgenstein, Klimt-designed interiors that shaped the modern home. Through interviews, testimonials, and archival footage, the film presents the Viennese interior against the backdrop of Austria's troubled past.
