The exquisitely torturous lesbian love affair we all need in our life! Queer German iconoclast Rainer Werner Fassbinder burned quick and bright, exploding in the world of cinema by making over 3 dozen films in 10 years and exploring homosexuality, melodrama, comedy, and science-fiction through his elegant lens. Margit Carstensen and Hanna Schygulla (recently seen in Poor Things) star as a designer and model who fall in love and into a destructive pattern of control and jealousy in a stunning yet claustrophobic apartment. Magnificently photographed by the legendary Michael Ballhaus with a silken luxury in costume and decor – this breathtaking masterpiece will leave you in a state of ravishing disquiet.

Doors will open at 6:00pm, Join us for a drink at the bar!
