A new interpretation of the Thomas Bernhard monologue "Three Days" by Ferry Radax

In 1970, Thomas Bernhard, Austria’s most famous and critical playwright of his time, sat on a park bench in Hamburg and reflected on life. Austrian filmmaker Ferry Radax captured Bernhard’s monologue for three days in his documentary film “Three Days.”
Half a century later, Israeli-American theater director Guy Ben-Aharon stages the scene on the East River in New York City, with U.S. actor Ken Cheeseman delivering a riveting monologue recalling Bernhard’s original words, which are more relevant than ever, even in today’s uncertain times.
Cultural Forum NY will premiere the 15-minute short film on June 2 at 6pm CET on its YouTube channel. Watch the trailer beforehand here.
