Screenwriter Peter Märthesheimer

Peter Märthesheimer was a producer at Cologne’s public TV station, Westdeutscher Rundfunk, when he met Rainer Werner Fassbinder in 1972, commissioned several scripts, and introduced the director to a wider public. As a producer for Bavaria Studios in Munich, he worked with Fassbinder on DESPAIR (1977) and, most notably, BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ (1980). Märthesheimer, along with psychologist Pea Fröhlich, wrote all three films in Fassbinder’s BRD Trilogy (THE MARRIAGE OF MARIA BRAUN, LOLA, VERONIKA VOSS). This interview was conducted in March 2003 at Märthesheimer’s home in Pullach, near Munich.
