To celebrate its first anniversary, the Berlin Film Society, which specialises in pop-up film events around the city, is showing Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s brilliantly harrowing drama Veronika Voss. The film, which won the coveted Golden Bear award at the 1982 Berlinale, is about the strange relationship between a morphine-addicted actress and her doctor. This is Fassbinder’s second to last film, which some regard as one of his best – he died in 1982 at the age of 37, after a short but incredibly prolific career.
There will be a free bar before the film, which you are advised to take advantage of – Veronika Voss is pretty strong stuff. The two screenings, on the 13th and 14th of February, will take place at the Opernwerkstätten, a former theatre and prop factory currently home to globetrotting fine dining series Pret A Diner. After the screening guests can attend a three-course dinner hosted by Pret a Diner, at a specially reduced price. Fassbinder, fine whiskey and food – how can you resist?
