Werkschau Fassbinders Fernsehen

eine gemeinsame Reihe des WDR und der Cologne Conference

»A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country«, German feuilleton feature pages remarked even in April, when the great Fassbinder Exhibition and Retrospective opened at the Centre Pompidou. But come the director’s 60th birthday on May 31, German creatives in film, film critics, and intellectuals were heaping praise on Fassbinder in the very same papers, unanimously lauding his work’s importance to them, to German film history, and to the present. All commentators agreed that Fassbinder is post-war Germany’s most important director.
