Tribute to Rainer Werner Fassbinder - Lola (1981)

GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

Lola launches an plan to elevate herself in a world where everything is for sale.

During October we’ll have a tribute to director Rainer Werner Fassbinder, one of the most important figures in the New German Cinema. Fassbinder maintained a frenetic pace of filmmaking in a professional career that lasted less than fifteen years. Underlying Fassbinder's work was a desire to provoke and disturb. His phenomenal creative energy coexisted with a wild, self-destructive libertinism that earned him a reputation as the enfant terrible of the New German Cinema, as well as being its central figure. His pictures demonstrate his deep sensitivity to social outsiders and his hatred of institutionalized violence. He ruthlessly attacked both German bourgeois society and the larger limitations of humanity.

This film is in German with English subtitles.

Lola (1981) Germany in the autumn of 1957: Lola, a seductive cabaret singer-prostitute exults in her power as a temptress of men, but she wants out—she wants money, property, and love. Pitting a corrupt building contractor against the new straight-arrow building commissioner, Lola launches an outrageous plan to elevate herself in a world where everything, and everyone, is for sale. Shot in childlike candy colors, Fassbinder’s homage to Josef von Sternberg’s classic The Blue Angel stands as a satiric tribute to capitalism.
