Goethe-Institut holds Fassbinder retrospective
THE GOETHE-INSTITUT Philippinen will be holding a retrospective of some of the best works of the acclaimed German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Eleven Fassbinder films, including a documentary about him, will be screened for free every weekend in two venues: the Ili Likha Artists Village in Baguio from March 10 to April 1; and at the Cinematheque Centre Manila from April 7 to April 22. To be screened are
Fassbinder (2015), Katzelmacher (1969), The Merchant of Four Seasons (1971), The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972), Martha (1973), Fear Eats the Soul (1973), Fox and His Friends (1974), Chinese Roulette (1976, photo right), The Marriage of Maria Braun (1978), Lili Marleen (1980), Veronika Voss (1981, photo far right), and Lola (1981). Fassbinder is famously known for his short-lived yet exceptional career that lasted for nearly 16 years until his death in 1982. Between 1966 and 1982, he directed an astonishing 39 films (including six television movies and series) and four video productions. He directed 24 stage plays, four radio plays, acted, and worked as a cameraman, a composer, a designer, editor, producer, and theater manager. The screenings are free admission on a first come, first serve basis. For details, visit www.goethe.de/ins/ph/ de/ver.cfm?fuseaction=events.detail&event_id=21175310.
