Author: Alex DeLeon

Contains a 30 page chapter on Yiddish cinema.
Looking for Fassbinder and Finding Divine is an intriguing survey of film festivals in the last quarter of the 20th century, ending with the crash of the Twin Towers at the turn of the millennium. Prolific German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who died of an overdose at age 37, and midnight-movies star drag queen Divine, known for the trash classic Pink Flamingos, were both cult figures with devoted followings. The lively style of writing and unique back street view of the international film scene is likely to make this book a cult collector’s item.
