Personal Quote:

I think what I'm proposing is a very old contractual agreement - that both the producer and receiver of a work of art take each other seriously. On the other hand, today's conventional cinema, or mass cinema ... sees the audience member as a bank machine, whose only function is to spit out money. It pretends to satisfy viewers' needs, but refuses to do so. See more »

As a playwright he directed a number of stage productions in German, which included works by August Strindberg, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Heinrich von Kleist in Berlin, Munich and Vienna. See more »
