The filmmaker, who was Fassbinder’s friend, built this documentary around a core of sensitive material that he was “afraid to look at” for a long time. In one single interview, the mentally and physically completely exhausted auteur revealed the key to his own self-image. This found footage film includes talks with people close to Fassbinder, excerpts from his films, and a lightly sarcastic Freudian commentary.


The Danish director, scriptwriter and author Christian Braad Thomsen makes acted films and documentaries. His Ladies on the Rocks (1983) received the Best Direction Award at the Atlantic Film Festival. Fassbinder: To Love Without Demands premiered at the Berlinale 2015.
