Fear Of Fear
(Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1975, 88 min, Germany, German w/ subtitles, Color, Digital)

A woman in a stable but passionless marriage begins to lose her mind when she becomes pregnant with her second child. Liquor, valium, and music prove cold comfort in a ruthless, alienating world. A made-for-tv melodrama only Fassbinder could conceive.

— Introduced by Prof. Markos Hadjioannou (Program in Literature)
