Hey everyone, Alex will be showing two films directed by Rainer Werner Fessbinder in his awesome home theater!
First is "The Marrage of Maria Braun" (1979) starring Hanna Schygulla as a woman who refuses to accept the loss of her husband-a soldier in World War II-as a personal defeat. She uses every tool at her disposal to reinvent herself following the Hitler years.
In "Querelle" (1982) the plot centers on the handsome Belgian sailor Georges Querelle who is also a thief and murderer. When his ship, the Vengeur, arrives in Brest, he visits the Feria, a bar and brothel for sailors run by the madame Lysiane, whose lover Robert is Querelle's brother. Querelle has a love/hate relationship with his brother and it's this triangle which drives the plot of the film. This film stars Brad Davis.
Both films are rated R for sexual situations. Hope to see you there!
