TWIG Film Club - January: The Baader Meinhof Complex


This week we were joined by filmmaker Malachi Ray Rempen for our This Week in Germany Film Club! Each month we're going to watch a film from Germany and discuss the themes it brings up.

January's film is The Baader Meinhof Complex!

The Baader Meinhof Complex (German: Der Baader Meinhof Komplex) is a 2008 German film by Uli Edel. Written and produced by Bernd Eichinger, it stars Moritz Bleibtreu, Martina Gedeck, and Johanna Wokalek. The film is based on the 1985 German best selling non-fiction book of the same name by Stefan Aust. It retells the story of the early years of the West German far-left militant group the Rote Armee Fraktion (Red Army Faction, or RAF) from 1967 to 1977. (Wikipedia)
