"One of the most prolific and influential European filmmakers of the second half of the 20th century, Rainer Werner Fassbinder completed nearly 40 feature-length films between 1969 and 1982 (the year he died at age 37) and left behind one of the most cohesive and provocative bodies of work in the history of cinema. In his many melodramas, gangster movies, literary adaptations, and even sci-fi films, he returned obsessively to themes of love, crime, labor, and social and emotional exploitation. He was similarly fixated on his beloved performers, many of whom – Hanna Schygulla, El Hedi ben Salem, Ulli Lommel, and countless others – comprised a repertory company whose fierce, complicated devotion to their visionary leader defies comparison." –  Film Society of Lincoln Centre

Marking the 30th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall – and programmed in parallel to the Goethe-Institut's upcoming Jürgen Böttcher retrospective – we're pleased to present a selection of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's digitally restored film and television works from across his vast oeuvre.
