From the Studio
Franz Kafka, renowned author of The Metamorphosis and The Trial, is considered one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. A sleepwalker, Kafka wrote almost exclusively at night. Small wonder that his classic novels resemble dreams or, more precisely-- nightmares. WHO WAS KAFKA? explores this and much about the secretive and legendary literary figure who, according to director Richard Dindo, “wrote perhaps the most beautiful letters in the history of literature.” Using actors to play the people who knew Kafka the best, the film features “interviews” with historical figures who respond using the actual words they wrote about their unique relationships with the writer.
