“I am my films,” said Rainer Werner Fassbinder, probably the most important German director of the 20th century. During his mere thirty-seven years in our world, he managed to make forty-four of them. The symbiosis of the scandalous, self-destructively intense life of this controversial character and his cinematic opus is introduced in this exclusive documentary connecting autobiographical moments of his work with never-published interviews and texts.
