Fassbinder - To Love Without Demands
Fassbinder is the most productive director in film history. In 14 years he wrote and directed 60 films for cinemas and tv. He started as an avantgarde-director and in the end reached a large audience all over the world without ever compromising. He is above all the visual interpreter of German history in the 20th century from the collapse of the Weimar republic to the terrorism of the 1970’s. But what is extraordinary about his films is, that he investigates, how history influences the life of a single person.
Danish film director Christian Braad Thomsen was a close friend of Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1945-82). They met when Fassbinder showed his first film LOVE IS COLDER THAN DEATH at the Berlinale 1969 and saw each other for the last time just three weeks before he died.
