With special permission from Fassbinder Foundation, Cilla Back made a new adaptation of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's cult film " Die Ehe der Maria Braun" premiering at the Lilla Teatern in Helsinki.
The powerful, compelling portray of a womans climb from misery to power
and wealth is still incredibly relevant. It is not only a fascinating portrayal of the metamorphosis of a woman, it's a lucid analysis of the materialism and cynicism of our time - reigned by nihilism.
