FASSBINDER: TO LOVE WITHOUT DEMANDS
FASSBINDER: LIEBEN OHNE ZU FORDERN
2015, 109 min, Denmark, Dir: Christian Braad Thomsen

Director Christian Braad Thomsen’s documentary about his longtime friend Rainer Werner Fassbinder paints a remarkably intimate portrait of the prolific German director. Through new interviews, scenes from his films and rare footage (including shots of him being booed at his first festival screening, struggling to direct a traffic sequence in “Berlin Alexanderplatz” and reflecting on his work just hours before his untimely death in 1982), Fassbinder emerges as philosopher, circus ringmaster and one of the most powerful creative voices of post-WWII Germany. In German with English subtitles.
