Whity 1971 rainer werner fassbinder 1


Rainer Werner Fassbinder / DEUZE, 1971 / 95 min.

This film by Fassbinder was never released in the Netherlands. Shot in a town near Almeria in the southeast of Spain, it is a Western-style melodrama on cruelty, humiliation and American archetypes. Whity was the source of inspiration for Paul McCarthy's DADDA currently featured in Eye’s Xtended programme.
