Celebrating Max Reinhardt with 'A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM'
One of the most important and innovative directors of the first half of the 20th Century, Max Reinhardt (born Goldmann) had a decisive impact in theatre and film reaching from Europe to America. In Salzburg in 1920, he launched the Salzburg Festival, today one of the worlds most famous and influential festivals. Reinhardt was celebrated in Europe as a genius. In 1938, after fleeing certain death under the Nazis regime, he continued his visionary work as an émigré in Los Angeles, where he founded the California Film Festival at the Hollywood Bowl. There he directed his only film in America, A Midsummer Nights Dream. He cast Olivia de Havilland as Hermia and gave then 14 year old Mickey Rooney his first breakthrough as Puck. The film was nominated in 1936, for four Oscars. All the while, the film was banned in Germany and became a symbol of resistance against Fascism.

On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Max Reinhardts death, LAJFF will, in cooperation with the Austrian Consulate General - feature this masterpiece.

Pre-film discussion with Reinhardt experts, Ms. Helga Rabl-Stadler, President of the Salzburg Festival, Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times, Stan Taffel, President of Cinecon, moderated by Gert Korentschnig, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Kurier

In this classic screen adaptation of Shakespeare's fantastical play, the royal wedding plans of Theseus, the duke of Athens (Ian Hunter) and Hippolyta overlap with the antics of forest fairies. Meanwhile, young lovers, including Lysander (Dick Powell) and Hermia (Olivia de Havilland), deceive each other in amusing ways, and magic adds a mischievous element to this enchanted romantic comedy.
