Bruno Kreisky - Politics and Passion

Bruno Kreisky - Politik und Leidenschaft

He was an Austrian politician, the kind that comes once a century. And in January 2011 he would have been a century old.  "Bruno Kreisky. Politics and Passion" is the portrait of a man who loved politics with a passion; for him, politics was life itself.

 

It was utterly extraordinary that Kreisky, a social Democrat from a middle-class Jewish family in Vienna, should rise to the position of Austrian Foreign Minister and then Chancellor, and be elected three times with an absolute majority.  During the 1970s half the world was fascinated by this fact.  He was a reformer, a media genius, a great rhetorician and an internationalist who turned his country into a bridge between East and West and made huge efforts to secure a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the Middle East.

 

The film "Bruno Kreisky. Politics and Passion" shows Kreisky in five key situations during his political life but also reveals the private man. There are also comments from several prominent contemporaries and companions, including Henry Kissinger, former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, Austrian President Heinz Fischer, the industrialist Hannes Androsch, the artist André Heller and the journalist Barbara Coudenhove-Kalergi.
