  • In a Year of 13 Moons

    1978. West Germany. Written, directed, photographed, art directed, and co-edited by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. With Volker Spengler, Ingrid Caven, Karl Scheydt. Every seventh year has 13 full moons, considered by some to be quite unlucky—which is certainly true for Elvira (formerly Erwin) a husband, father, and butcher who became a woman to please the man he loves. After suffering repeated rejections, Elvira revisits the stations of her life as a man between July 24 and August 28, 1978. In German; English subtitles. 124 min.
