ROLAND KLICK – THE HEART IS A HUNGRY HUNTER … the gritty, kinetic, visionary cinema of Roland Klick At the age of fourteen Roland Klick knew: Cinema is what my soul is longing for. Filmmaking as an adventure, as an existen- tial experience, escape from and rebellion against the over- structured German post-war reality. The director as an explorer and foreign legioner, in search of himself. Roland Klick, the director of films such as DEADLOCK (with Mario Adorf) and WHITE STAR (with Dennis Hopper) has an exceptional position in German cinema. Maladjusted to the forms of New German Film of the 70s, too imaginative and un- conventional for the commercial cinema, marginalized by the critical establishment – although his films won six state film awards – he has celebrated international success and has gained cult status. Klick’s dystopian punk rock odysseys, acid- drenched westerns and youth-oriented crime dramas are ripe for rediscovery. ROLAND KLICK – THE HEART IS A HUNGRY HUNTER is a documentary about the exceptional director of modern German film history.
