Synopsis by Kaitlin Elise Miller
Female Russian-German writer Lou Andreas-Salomé (Katharina Lorenz) bucks 19th-century gender conventions in her intellectual pursuits, attracting the admiration of her famed male contemporaries, including Friedrich Nietzsche (Alexander Scheer), Sigmund Freud (Harald Schrott), and poet Rainer Maria Rilke (Julius Feldmeier). With Freud as her mentor, she defies society’s expectations to become the world’s first female psychoanalyst. Directed by Cordula Kablitz-Post.
