FASSBINDER
2015, 92 min, Germany, Dir: Annekatrin Hendel

One of the most prolific and controversial figures in German film history, Rainer Werner Fassbinder had a unique ability to portray German society with painful honesty, often polarizing the nation. Fassbinder’s legacy included revolutionary work in theater as well as the 44 films he directed before his untimely death at age 37 in 1982. This new documentary skillfully blends this body of work with the director’s personal life to illuminate an obsessive artist driven to create at all costs. Never-before-seen archival material, as well as rare interviews with friends and colleagues including Irm Hermann, Margit Carstensen, Harry Baer, Hanna Schygulla and Volker Schlöndorff, provide fresh insight into the New German Cinema’s enfant terrible. In German with English subtitles.
