Enfant Terrible

Directed by Oskar Roehler

Cast: Erdal Yildiz, Hary Prinz, Katja Riemann, Oliver Masucci

When 22-year-old Rainer Werner Fassbinder storms the stage of a small, progressive theatre in Munich 1967, and seizes the production without further ado, nobody suspects this brazen young rebel to become one of the most important post-war German filmmakers. Despite early setbacks, many of his films break out at the most renowned films festivals and polarize audience, critics and filmmakers alike. His radical views and self-exploitation, as well as his longing for love, have made him one of the most fascinating film directors of this time.

Official Selection: Cannes, Hamburg, Seville, Tallinn
