Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Werner Herzog. Wim Wenders. Three directors whose names stand for the exodus of the West German cinema from the decades of insignificance of the post-war period. As of 1970, the blossoming of the German cinema began and caused a global sensation with films like FEAR EATS THE SOUL, EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF AND GOD AGAINST ALL or IN THE COURSE OF TIME. For the first time since the golden age of expressionism in the 1920s, German filmmakers, whose new works receive international attention and acclaim, are back. Significantly responsible in part for this departure, is the Filmverlag der Autoren (The Authors' Film Publishing Guild) - a production and distribution cooperative that was founded in Munich in April 1971 by 13 filmmakers. Ranking amongst the first members ...

Tracing my two mothers in Riga is my personal history. I was born Holger Mischwitzky in Riga, Latvia, on November 25th, 1942. In 2000, my then 94-year-old mother told me I was not her son and that she had found me in a children's home in Riga during the German occupation. That was all she was prepared to say. She died in 2003. Initially I didn't want to start searching, she had been a loving mother to me. Two years later I did become curious, but not knowing my real family name, I thought searching would be futile.
