At the 70th Berlinale, in the Series section, we meet the creators of Freud, the Netflix series about Austria’s most popular figure: Doctor Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis. Benjamin Hessler and Stefan Brunner reveal the genesis of the project and then proceed to explain the difficulties of writing something new and creative out of a figure who has almost a whole vocabulary after his name. How much freedom can a writer have when creating a series about a person we all technically know?

Freud: Eager to make his name in 19th-century Vienna, a hungry young Sigmund Freud joins a psychic and an inspector to solve a string of bloody mysteries.

To find out more, listen to this interview and watch Freud on Netflix from march 23rd.
