BORN ON THE HIGH SEAS 

Rejected, unwelcome refugees.
... adored and highly endowed football idols.
Two profoundly different emotional sentiments, which could hardly be more different. A movie about the right to fair treatment and the search for affiliation and acceptance.










  The eviction of intelligence:
THE LIFE OF MARTIN KARPLUS Martin Karplus

was born in Vienna on the 15th of March 1930 and, in 1938, was forced into exile by the Nazis. The film portrays Martin Karplus on location at his scientific work in Harvard and Strasbourg. It attempts to portray and understand the results of his research while projecting forward to his potential impact on medicine and pharmacology. The film crew accompanies Martin Karplus to Vienna where, in the spring of 2015, on the 650th anniversary of the University, he will be presented with an honorary doctorate. As a part of this tribute an exhibition of his photography will be held. And along with this he seeks to be convinced that in Vienna, anti-Semitism is finally in retreat.
