Competition: Win Querelle DVD
Widely regarded as a classic piece of queer cinema, director Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s seminal 1982 movie, Querelle, is finally getting a DVD/Blu-Ray release on 10 March 2014 – and we have three copies to offer away in a competition. Adapted from Jean Genet's infamous, groundbreaking novel, the final film of Fassbinder's career is a striking, surreal and utterly unique tale of sex and murder.
