Summary
This film was made during a visit by Sigmund Freud to Sanatorium Schloss Tegel and Psychoanalytische Klinik, opened by Ernst Simmel in Berlin in 1927. The 1906 building was renovated for Simmel by Freud's son Ernst L. Freud, an architect then practicing in Berlin. Sigmund Freud was a frequent guest at Tegel before the sanatorium closed in 1931. This film is likely to have been made in the fall of 1928 while Freud was in Berlin to have a new prosthesis made for his cancerous jaw and palate. The film depicts Freud on the grounds of the sanatorium, assisting a group of children in harvesting what appear to be chestnuts. Among the adults present are Anna Freud, Ernst L. Freud and his wife Lucie Freud, and Princess Marie Bonaparte.
