Film Screening: Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "Whity" (1970)

Please join the DLCL for a screening of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "Whity" (1970)! This film is a part of the DLCL Film Series: Images of America - German Cinema and Beyond. Join us every Wednesday from April 3rd to June 5th for a new film.

About 40 years before Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” Rainer Werner Fassbinder approaches the topic of slavery and racial discrimination through the genre of the Western movie. Unlike Tarantino, though, Fassbinder tells his story of slavery through discourses of gender, sadism, power and twisted family relations. Shot in cinemascope by Michael Ballhaus, this film is a cinematic masterpiece.
