Deutschland im Herbst = Germany in autumn by Alf Brustellin( Visual )

12 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An attempt to gauge the spirit of West Germany in the autumn of 1977. Draws its title and some of its inspiration from a satire written by Heinrich Heine in 1844 attacking the monarchy, German philistinism and politics and the tendency of the fragmented German peoples to revere the Middle Ages. This compilation, supervised by Kluge, of the work of twelve filmmakers in sixteen segments, is similarly wide ranging in its attack and incorporates both staged and found material

In the first film of the collaboration between Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski, Don Lope de Aguirre dreams about conquering South America and leads his army on a doomed mission into oblivion. Jonathan Harker embarks on a long journey over the Carpathian Mountains to finalize real estate arrangements with a wealthy nobleman, little realizing that he is about to become involved with a dangerous vampire, Nosferatu. The third film in the collection, Woyzeck, focuses on a soldier battered beyond endurance by abuse from commanding officers, doctors and even his faithless wife. Fitzcarraldo has a mighty dream, to bring Enrico Caruso and Sarah Bernhardt together in a remote town in Peru for one great performance of Grand Opera. To achieve this he will have to overcome almost unsurmountable odds. Cobra Verde was a 19th century Brazilian bandit who is sent on a deadly mission to re-open the slave trade in West Africa. In meeting his mission he goes on to lead an army of women in a war against the local king. My best fiend is a film about the love-hate relationship between Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski, two creative geniuses of the film industry

Effi Briest by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Effi Briest is a radiant beauty, a vivacious blend of naivete and intelligence, forthrightness and willful self interest. She is married when very young to a much older Prussian diplomat and carried away to a remote Baltic port where she drifts into a brief, passionless affair with a local womanizer. The full effects are felt only later, in a chilling manifestation of the Prussian legal code

"Le 31 mai 2015, Rainer Werner Fassbinder aurait eu 70 ans. Portrait de la figure majeure du nouveau cinéma allemand, auteur de 44 films parmi les plus dérangeants du siècle. Contesté ou adulé, Fassbinder aura été un bourreau de travail. À sa mort en 1982, à seulement 37 ans, il a déjà réalisé 44 films et de nombreuses séries télévisées. Parallèlement, il a révolutionné le théâtre avec sa troupe contestataire, l'Antiteater. Ses thèmes de prédilection explorent l'histoire allemande récente, qu'il s'agisse de la montée du nazisme dans Berlin Alexanderplatz et Lili Marleen, de l'après guerre, du retour des soldats et du miracle économique dans Lola, une femme allemande et Le mariage de Maria Braun, de la xénophobie dans Tous les autres s'appellent Ali, des années de plomb avec sa contribution à L'Allemagne en automne et La troisième génération. La violence et la souffrance liées au sentiment amoureux, qu'il soit homosexuel ou hétérosexuel, traversent également toute son oeuvre. Plus de trente ans après sa mort, à travers les témoignages de ses amis, mécènes, collaborateurs et amants, tout comme ceux de ses comédiennes fétiches, dont Hanna Schygulla, ce portrait se penche sur la personnalité complexe de l'homme, ses démons, sa bisexualité et sa fragilité autodestructrice."
