A film-mosaic by Regina Strassegger about Joseph Freiherr von Hammer-Purgstall, a specialist in oriental studies, royal interpreter, diplomat, writer and founder of the Academy of Sciences who was born in Graz in 1774. He was a major – although nearly forgotten – personality in the East/West cultural history of the 18th and 19th centuries. His story is portrayed against the fate of a young Palestinian who arrived in Austria just before the out break of the war in Lebanon in 2006.
