Book Cover
A Companion to Rainer Werner Fassbinder

A Companion to Rainer Werner Fassbinder is a groundbreaking collection. The first to engage fully with this important figure, whose untimely death in 1982 is said to have marked the end of New German cinema. Twenty-eight chapters consider this controversial director's contribution to German cinema, German history, gender and queer studies, and auteurship. Riding a wave of renewed interest in Fassbinder as a result of the increasing availability of his work, this collection puts the enigmatic director, actor, and character in context and considers the reach of his influence on a new generation of film makers.

These contributions by an international group of scholars provide a range of multiple perspectives through which Fassbinder emerges as an even more engagingly complex—and more brilliant—auteur than ever before.
