Round up of Resources for the German film – BAADER-MEINHOF KOMPLEX

This is the first post in an ongoing series in which I will try to put together an overview of resources and reviews for individual European films. Hopefully it will both be of  help to people studying the film and teachers using it as teaching aid in Schools and Universities, as well as for people who might just want more info on the film.
