SCHRAMM: INTO THE MIND OF A SERIAL KILLEREgyptian Theatre / October 24, 2013 | 9:00pm
1994, Werstattkino, 65 min. Dir. Jörg Buttgereit
As “Lipstick Killer” Lothar Scramm (Florian Koerner von Gustorf) lies dying, his life flashes before his eyes – and it’s pretty grim. A loner who drives a taxi, Schramm is attracted to a prostitute who lives next door, but is unable to initiate a real relationship with her – and so works out his kinks on random victims. Bizarre and disturbing, with a sense of the mental anguish underlying the (sometimes quite graphic) violence.
In German with English subtitles. Discussion between films with director Jörg Buttgereit. Double feature with NEKROMANTIK. Due to extreme sexual and graphic violence, no one under 18 will be admitted.
Beyond Fest is proud to welcome Jorg to Los Angeles and screen two of his most important films on the only 35mm prints in existence.
