Baader Meinhof

August 21st at the Angelika New York and September 18 at the Angelikas Dallas & Houston.

Featuring THE LIVES OF OTHERS star Martina Gedeck
, THE BAADER MEINHOF COMLEX is a riveting, powerful, gritty account of Germany’s Red Army Faction (RAF), its initial aims and violent spiral.

BAFTA Film Award nominee Uli Edel directs this Academy Award-nominated adaptation of Stefan Austâ??s best-selling book of the same title. Chronicling the initial ambitions of the RAF and the groupâ??s resulting robberies, kidnappings and bombings, THE BAADER MEINHOF COMPLEX follows three of its prominent members: journalist Ulrike Meinhof (Gedeck), organizers Andreas Baader (Moritz Bleibtreu) and Gudrun Ensslin (Johanna Wokalek) on a journey that destroys the very humanity they seek to reclaim.
