Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1969

Katzelmacher

Jorgos (played by Fassbinder) is a Greek immigrant in Germany who encounters the intolerance of the locals aimed at foreign workers. This open hostility turns to violence when he is beaten up by authoritarian thugs after dating a German woman. Male and female nudity along with hetero and homosexual sex scenes are shown in this searing indictment against prejudice and fascism. This feature took the Prize of International Film Critics at the Mannheim Film Festival in 1969. (approx. 90 minutes)
