Rosa von Praunheim: the Funhouse interview

This week is Pride Week, and so it’s sorta apropos that I’m airing the second part of my interview with German filmmaker and provocateur Rosa von Praunheim. I already offered up some choice von Praunheim links on this blog a few weeks back. But now I have the opportunity to present a clip from both von Praunheim Funhouse episodes.

In the first clip we discuss camp humor in his work

And in the second we turn to his 1990s campaign of “outing” closeted German celebrities, and the anger it created in the media and among his friends.
