Carlos - Der Schakal
Olivier Assayas
FRA, DEU 2009
187 min

Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, a.k.a. Carlos, is a central figure in the history of international terrorism in the 70’s and 80’s, from pro-Palestinian activism to the Japanese Red Army. At once a figure of the extreme left and an opportunistic mercenary in the pay of powerful Middle Eastern secret services, he formed his own organization based on the other side of the Iron Curtain which was active during the final years of the Cold War. This film is the story of a revolutionary internationalist, both manipulator and manipulated, as he is carried along by the currents of contemporary history and his own folly.

The long version in three parts of Carlos will be screened on October, 30 at 11 a.m. in the Künstlerhaus.

In the presence of Olivier Assayas, Nora von Waldstätten, Christoph Bach, Julia Hummer and Alexander Scheer.
