Werner Schroeter.

Werner Schroeter (born 7 April 1945, Georgenthal, Thuringia) is a German film director and screenwriter, considered one of the most important of his country in the post-war period. He has also worked in film as a producer, cinematographer, editor and actor. In the later function he appeared in several films directed by his friend Rainer Werner Fassbinder, including Beware of a Holy Whore (1971), and a number of theatre productions.

His 1980 film Palermo oder Wolfsburg, telling the story of a Sicilian guest worker in Germany, won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, while his 1991 production Malina was entered into that year's Cannes Film Festival.[1].

In the 1960s, Schroeter worked with Rosa von Praunheim, who is also gay.[2] Schroeter has also worked as a theater and opera director, in Germany and elsewhere.
