Baader Meinhof Complex

Based on a book by Stefan Aust, the film retells the story of the terrorist group RAF (Rote Armee Fraktion- Red Army Faction) in 1970s West Germany. Contemporary aesthetics present a new take on the German student movement of the 1960s, in particular of the violent “German Autumn” (Deutscher Hebst) of 1977.
