German film director Christian Petzold was born on September 14, 1960.
In the book Fisher writes:
Petzold’s films consistently explore these new and transformational modes of individualities, especially the compromised, even tainted, character of desire in the wake of such economic adaptability, accommodation, and mobility. This kind of adaptability, productive desire, and subsequent movement are emphatically historicized in Petzold’s cinema, in which history regularly intrudes upon individuals’ dreams, fantasies, and desires as well as the spaces they inhabit.
Christian Petzold, set for publication in December 2013, is the first book-length study on of the director in English.
