Mondo Lux - Die Bilderwelten des Werner Schroeter

Documentary Germany 2011

Mireille: this is the name Werner Schroeter gave to the tumor which caused his death in 2010. An act that was consistent with his unique personality, always clear-headed and opposed to compromises. He was one of the most important directors of the Neuer Deutscher Film movement, a director of opera and theatre, a friend of Wender and of Fassbinder (acting in one of his movies), and former partner of Rosa von Praunheim. This feature shows the last four years of Schroeter's life, while he was directing the stage production of Antigone/Elektra and doing the post production work on This Night, released in 2008. A refined dandy, an eccentric experimenter, he was awarded the Golden Bear in 1980 at the Berlin Film Festival for Palermo or Wolfsburg. He also directed The Death of Maria Malibran (which stars Magdalena Montezuma, his favourite actress) and The Reign of Naples. His elegant, provocative movies are about intense passions, with a taste for all that is decadent, baroque, mélo, manieristic and Italian. Mondo Lux is a visual diary which becomes Schroeter's testament, made by Elfi Mikesch, Schroeter's director of photography since 1985.
