We will soon be reaching the 41st anniversary of the death of Rainer Werner Fassbinder at the age of 37. As a director, he left behind 44 films: full of souls caught in storms, they are provocative works that examine Germany's past and present from a completely new point of view. He was 27 years old when he adapted his own stage play The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, in which all the characters are women, for the silver screen. It is a film of inner events. A drama about codependencies interdependences, as well as slow-burning relationships. A film that is kept moving by small gestures, colours and hesitatingly delivered sentences. It is not easy to forget about it.
In German, with Hungarian subtitles.
The discussions before and after the screening will be conducted in Hungarian.
