The life and the impact of iconic German New Wave director, Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
When Rainer Werner Fassbinder aged just 22, completely turned a production of the Munich Antitheatre upside down in 1967, those present never even dreamed that this young rebel would one day be one of the country's most important filmmakers. But his unconventional nature is both infectious and attractive, and so it is not long before actresses, self-promoters and affairs make advances to him and Fassbinder makes one film after another, which then causes a sensation at the Cannes and Berlin festivals. As in film and in real life, Fassbinder goes where it hurts. Rainer Werner Fassbinder is known for harassing his team, as well as his friends and lovers.
