‘The Challenge of Rudolf Steiner’

New York Open Center will host the premier screening of Jonathan Stedall’s biographical documentary The Challenge of Rudolf Steiner this summer.

The screening, accompanied by a lecture, will take place Tuesday, August 14 at 8 p.m.

New York Open Center is located at 22 East 30th Street, near Madison Avenue, in Manhattan.

From the publicity:


Tonight the director of this long-awaited film introduces his new work. Shot in Austria, Switzerland, India, the United Kingdom and the United States during 2011—the 150th anniversary year of Rudolf Steiner’s birth—this documentary looks not only at the biography of this remarkable visionary and philosopher, but also at his world-wide legacy in education (Waldorf Schools, Camphill), agriculture (Biodynamics), medicine (Weleda, Hauschka), and all areas of social and spiritual life. At the heart of this film lie the classic questions: Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?


Admission costs $20 for members of NY Open Center, and $22 for non-members.

(How New York Open Center called dibs on the debut, over the Anthroposophical Society, is unknown to me.)

Thanks for this. I might also point out that beautiful building on the upper East Side with the Waldorf curriculum. See: http://www.steiner.edu/

Steiner left quite a legacy behind.
