Event Description

IN A YEAR WITH 13 MOONS (1978, WGermany, 124 mins). In German w/ English Subtitles.

Queer cinema meets hollywood melodrama in this dramatic study of trans-gendered subjectivity and desire. This film combines irony with a great deal of sympathy as it tells the story of transsexual Elvira / Erwin (Volker Spengler), who on a love-interest's whim travels to Casablanca for a sex change operation. However, when s/he is later rejected, s/he admits s/he has ruined his/her life. The strange lighting effects and often fragmented and dark compositions place this among Fassbinder's most experimental films and one of his most harsh and sincere investigations of marginal figures living in urban culture. The film is explicitly personal, a reaction of sorts to the suicide of Fassbinder's lover, Armin Meier. History tells us the filmmaker began shooting this edgy work a week following Armin's death.


i have personally been seeking a copy of this work for years and am pleased to be able to present it in its original[widescreen] cut. A must see for fans of douglas sirk, todd haynes and the queer cinema movement
