MOTHER KÜSTERS GOES TO HEAVEN

SHOWTIMES / BUY TICKETS
October 08 only

Mrs. Küsters’ husband works in a factory. He kills his boss, and then himself. Her kids react to the news by going on holiday, but poor Mrs. Küsters’ tragedy becomes a super-politicized event of increasingly hyperbolic proportions, as the tabloid press, craven children, Communist Party and anarchist terrorists vie for her allegiance. Fassbinder’s reaction to the terrorist chic overwhelming West Germany (and much of Europe) in the 1970s is a sleeper classic. Starring Brigitte Mira, Ingrid Caven & Margit Carstensen. Dir: RW Fassbinder. 1975. 35mm. West Germany. In German w/ English Subtitles. 108 mins. . 7pm
