Event Description
In Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s subversive romantic comedy Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974), a lonely widow (Brigitte Mira) meets a young man (El Hedi ben Salem) in a bar. Wielding the romantic power of classic Hollywood melodrama, the film also exposes racial tensions underlying contemporary German culture. This film is screened in conjunction with the public art project Pledges of Allegiance. Running time: 93 min. Not Rated. German and Arabic with English subtitles.
