Roland Klick - The Heart Is a Hungry Hunter

Sandra Prechtel
DEU 2013
80 min

At the age of fourteen Roland Klick was certain: cinema was what his soul was longing for. Filmmaking as an adventure, existential experience and escape from overstructured German post-war reality. The film director as explorer and foreign legionnaire, 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 Cinema of the 70’s, too imaginative and unconventional for commercial cinema, Klick was marginalized by the critical establishment. Although his films won several German Film Awards, were internationally acclaimed and achieved cult status, Klick was written out of history. His dystopian punk-rock odysseys, acid-drenched Westerns and youth-oriented crime dramas are now ripe for rediscovery.
