Film Discussion “The Baader Meinhof Complex” (2008)
January 31 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Baader Meinhof Complex (German: Der Baader Meinhof Komplex) is a 2008 German drama film directed by Uli Edel. Written and produced by Bernd Eichinger, the film stars Moritz Bleibtreu, Martina Gedeck and Johanna Wokalek.
The film is a look at Germany’s terrorist group, the Rote Armee Fraktion (Red Army Fraction, or Red Army Faction, a.k.a. RAF) which organized bombings, robberies, kidnappings and assassinations in the late 1960s and ’70s. The Baader Meinhof Complex retells the story of the early years of the West far-left terrorist organization from 1967 to 1977.
Fascinating history! The film is based on the 1985 German bestselling non-fiction book of the same name by Stefan Aust. It was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 81st Academy Awards and was also nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 66th Golden Globe Awards.
Honorary Consul of Germany in Dallas, Andreas K. Bremer, will lead the discussion, and DGC Board Members will participate as well. Watch the film before Sunday, January 31st, then join the Zoom meeting at 3:00PM and come prepared with your comments and questions.
