84 x 59.5cm, full colour poster promoting an anthology film by directors of the new German Film movement (Including Boll, Brustellin, Cloos, Fassbinder, Kluge, Mainka, Reitx, Rupe, Schondorff, Sinkel and Steinbach) examining the rise of anti-capitalist terrorism (the Baader-Meinhoff / RAF) in the mid 70s. VG+.
From Foundation Prada:
“The movie covers two months in 1977 during which a businessman was kidnapped, and later murdered, by the left-wing terrorists known as the RAF–Rote Armee Fraktion (Red Army Faction). The businessman had been kidnapped in an effort to secure the release of the original leaders of the RAF, also known as the Baader-Meinhof gang. When the kidnapping and a plane hijacking effort failed, the three prominent leaders of the RAF—Andreas Baader, Gudrun Ersslin, and Jean-Carl Raspe—all committed suicide in prison. It has become an article of faith within the left-wing community that they were murdered by the State. The movie has several vignettes, including an extended set of scenes with the famous directors Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Volker Schlöndorff, as well as the poet Heinrich Böll. Other scenes include documentary footage of the joint funeral of Baader, Ersslin, and Raspe. This is a zero-print, i.e. the director’s cut by Alexander Kluge and his chief editor Beate Mainka-Jellinghaus.”
