The new documentary from Rosa von Praunheim is a full-blown tribute to the world's most famous and best-loved German comic creator, Ralf König, author of works like Der bewegte Mann (Maybe... Maybe Not) and Kondom des grauens (The Killer Condom). Humour, irony and scathing observation of reality are his liberating weapons against intolerance.

BIOGRAPHY

This German screenwriter, producer and director, with over 70 films behind him, is seen as one of the great post-modern directors in his country. He is a leading activist in the German gay movement. In 1970, at the start of his career, he caused a sensation with the documentary It's not the Homosexual Who Is Perverse, But the Situation in Which He Lives (Nicht der Homosexuelle ist pervers, sondern die Situation, in der er lebt), considered to be the start of modern Germany's LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual) movement. König des comics was presented in the Panorama section at the last Berlinale.
