Tribute to Rainer Werner Fassbinder - The Marriage of Maria Braun (1978)

GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

A heartbreaking study of a woman picking herself up from the ruins of her own life.

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. 

The Marriage of Maria Braun (1978)
Maria (Hanna Schygulla) marries Hermann Braun in the last days of World War II, only to have him disappear in the war. Alone, Maria uses her beauty and ambition to prosper in Germany’s “economic miracle” of the 1950’s. Fassbinder’s biggest international box-office success and the first part of his “postwar trilogy,” The Marriage of Maria Braun is a heartbreaking study of a woman picking herself up from the ruins of her own life, as well as a pointed metaphorical attack on a society determined to forget its past.
