Peter Fleischmann Peter Fleischmann is a rare event. Rare in every sense; his films possess a manic intensity that courses through his images and leaps off the screen; he is a unique voice amongst the chroniclers of the social issues and ills endemic to postwar Europe; truly a European director, he made films with the great talents of the time, spanning countries from Italy to Greece to France to Germany; he even shot a political thriller in the dying days of Greek Junta. And rare in another sense: for all these accomplishments, Fleischmann is one of the most criminally under-seen filmmakers to come out of the New German Cinema in the wake of the French New Wave. In addition to screening a selection of his films, Fleischmann will present a masterclass on his work. SIFF is honored to present Flesichmann’s works— classics of the cinema of Cracking Up.
