R W Fassbinder film season – BFI April/May 2017


Rainer Werner Fassbinder was one of post-war Germany’s greatest filmmakers.

“I’d like to be for cinema what Shakespeare was for theater, Marx for politics and Freud for psychology: someone after whom nothing is as it used to be.”

Rainer Werner Fassbinder 

Love is Colder Than Death 1

BFI Southbank dedicates a two-part season in April and May to the works of R W Fassbinder.

The season begins a the end of March with an introduction. Dr Martin Brady, will introduce the season with a lecture on Fassbinder’s gangster films and melodramas, and explore the environment of 1960’s and 70’s Germany from which they emerged. On 29th March, there will be a screening of The Marriage of Maria Braun followed by a Q&A with actor Hanna Schygulla and editor/Fassbinder’s second wife Juliane Lorenz, who is also the president of Rainer Werner Fassbinder Foundation.

From there, the season will follow his film and television works retrospectively from Love is Colder than Death, and Katzelmacher, through Fear Eats The Soul, The Merchant of Four Seasons, The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, World on a Wire, to Lilli Marlene and Querelle.

Fassbinder’s short films, several documentaries on his life and work,  and education events are also included in the season.
