For the latest in our series exploring film through a philosophical lens, Professor Martin McQuillan (author of Deconstruction after 9/11) presents Ken McMullen’s political tale, a portrait of Leon Trotsky’s troubled daughter in 1930s Berlin as she undergoes treatment from psychotherapist Arthur Kronfeld (Ian McKellen).

We are joined by the director following the screening, with McMullen taking part in an in-depth conversation exploring the philosophical implications of Zina and the ideas behind his approach to filmmaking.
