Steiner documentary screened in Rockland

Jan 24, 2013
The second Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland, an all-concrete icon of expressionist architecture, was designed by Rudolph Steiner in 1923 and completed several years after his death. It is the world center for the anthroposophical movement.

Rockland — “The Challenge of Rudolph Steiner” documentary will be screened in two parts in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., co-sponsored with the Ashwood Waldorf School. The screenings will be Sundays, Feb. 3 and 10 at 2 p.m.

Rudolph Steiner's unique insights and research have long been a source of wonder and inspiration. Since his death in 1925, Steiner's vision has grown in both relevance and urgency. “The Challenge of Rudolf Steiner,” filmed during the 150th anniversary year of Steiner’s birth by veteran filmmaker Jonathan Stedall, tells the story of Steiner’s remarkable life (1861-1925) and explores the influence and impact of his ideas and insights in education, agriculture, medicine, finance and the arts across the globe.

The screenings are part of a continuing series of literary, film and musical offerings sponsored by the library and Friends of the Rockland Public Library. Admission is free. Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made with 48 hours notice by calling 594-0310.
