STORIES OF THE DUMPSTER KID (RESTORED VERSION)

THE DUMPSTER KID is an artistic creation: in every story, society forces her to learn something. But she, fully grown from the moment of her birth, unquestionably learns more than is called for. This extra knowledge, which is not wanted by society, regularly brings her into danger. Dumpster Kid dies in each story and across each genre. Her stories are set in a whole range of different time periods.

A selection of her other highly-acclaimed films includes: THE GOLDEN THING (1971), EIN GANZ PERFEKTES EHEPAAR (1974), A WOMAN WITH RESPONSIBILITIES (1978), DAS ALTE LIED (1992), DIE WILDE BÜHNE (1993), and DIE WIDERSTÄNDIGEN “ALSO MACHEN WIR WEITER” (2015).
