Autobiography of the film-maker in the form of a comic murder mystery. A must for lovers of gay cinema.
Can I Be Your Bratwurst, Please?
Exhuberant and camp cannibal comedy. In a small hotel in Hollywood, porn star Jeff Stryker starts a stag party incognito.
Der Einstein des Sex
Serious humour or humorous gravity; Rosa von Praunheim, one of the first outspoken gay film-makers, certainly takes an unusual approach to the life story of sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld. Politically significant but also a good laugh.
Für mich gab's nur noch Fassbinder
Portrait of the enfant terrible of German Cinema who died in 1982: Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Von Praunheim was fascinated by the contradiction between his wild life and the bourgeois dramas he made.
'Pfui Rosa' - Ein Selbstporträt von mit Rosa von Praunheim
Entertaining and moving self-portrait by the well-known film maker and gay activist Rosa von Praunheim. Documentary about work and life with exquisite anecdotes and nice fragments from his work.
Kühe vom Nebel geschwängert
Catchy mix of farce and documentary. Portrait of a Berlin theatre company made up entirely of the homeless, alcoholics and junks. They call themselves 'rats' and take the film over to have a party.
Dein Herz in meinem Hirn
Oppressive Kammerspiel about the man who tries to cheer up his depressive friend with sadomasochistic role-play. Then they decide to play out the true story of the Rothenberger cannibals...
Meine Mütter - Spurensuche in Riga
At the age of 65, the controversial louse in the fur of German cinema Rosa Von Praunheim found out that he was adopted. He has immediately made an investigative documentary into the roots of his life and hence a personal story about the horror of the Second World War.
Collage of images and sounds which the spectator can compile into a unit in his head. The soundtrack, as we might expect from Schroeter, contains plenty of opera, including music by Verdi and Wagner. The leading role is played by diva Magdalena Montezuma, a regular guest in Schroeter’s films.
Axel und Peter
A four-day-long clash of titans starring Axel Ranisch and Peter Kern with an off-the-cuff duet about diets and a sex scene featuring two pointing fingers.
