The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

Available on BFI Player, Prime Video
Tale of self-discovery based on the true story of a young man who suddenly appeared in Nuremberg in 1828 and later claimed to have been locked away in a tower since birth. When found, he can barely walk or speak and has no concept of social behaviour. Eventually he learns to read, write, talk, perform in society and think for himself. However, he remains an outsider, a mystery to both the town and himself.
