Kixott Movie Nights: The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant
April 19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:15 pm
One of the signature works of acclaimed German auteur Rainer Werner Fassbinder – which makes it one of the landmark works of European cinema by proxy – The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (1972) takes place in a single room, but packs a strong emotional whallop for it.
It’s no surprise that it’s gone on to inspire a varied assortment of filmmakers with an equally uncompromising vision – from Peter Strickland to Olivier Assayas and Francois Ozon, who paid explicit homage to this masterpiece with the recent ‘Peter von Kant’.
So grab a drink and cocoon yourself in this unconventional play of neuroses!
Starring: Margit Carstensen, Hanna Schygulla, Katrin Schaake
