Adolf Holl - Braunau on the Ganges
Adolf Holl embarks on a journey into the spirit world. He's looking for passage between the real and the shadow world. He succeeds in India, the place of longing for so many trying to make sense of the world. One finds what the West has lost – but also the bloody, bloodthirsty, and even the ultimate evil: Lord Shiva, the goddess Kali and the reborn Hitler ... Like an explorer of foreign continents Holl explored the contact points of the visible and the invisible worlds of Western thought and Eastern wisdom, of rulers and prophets. An invitation to an expedition through the endless expanses of religions. Adolf Holl, born in 1930 in Vienna was ordained a priest in 1954. His book "Jesus in Bad Company" (1971) brought him into conflict with the Catholic Church. In 1976 he was suspended from the priesthood. He now works as a writer and freelance journalist. He’s won numerous awards, including the Austrian State Prize for Cultural Journalism (2003) and Axel Corti Prize (2006).
