Baader's Angels: Women's Roles in German Terrorism Films

6 Dec 200710 Dec 2007

The Red Army Faction (RAF), better known as the Baader-Meinhof Group, rocked the West German democracy of the 1970s with a series of terrorist attacks that led the country into a deep national crisis - the notorious German Autumn.

Marking 30 years since the death of the group's leading membersAndreas Baader, Gudrun Ensslin and Jan-Carl Raspe—in Stammheim prison in October 1977, the ICA presents a season of films about the Red Army Faction and takes a close look at the role women have played in the revolutionary struggle, both politically and personally.
