Thanks to Reverse Shot contributor and bang bro Leah Churner for bringing this to my attention.

So, lookee here, it's Hanna Schygulla. Being magically levitated. By... Rainer Werner Fassbinder? To the strains of Kraftwerk's 'Radioactivity' On some manner of television program.

Huh.

    Herr F has run amok... and certainly the oddest Schygulla appearance I've seen since Dead Again.

    It's Circus of the Stars - takes place every year in the Circus Krone in Munich. Proceeds go to charity and all that.

    I had no idea RWF and Hanna Schygulla ever took park. Wild stuff - thanks for finding it!

    How jaunty he is and what a nice laugh they share after they've pretty much played out relations between RWF and his circle.

    Again, great find.

    And I was under the impression that Werner Herzog was the only New German Cinema director to hypnotize his actors. Anyway, whatever the context for this, I'm now certain RWF could have kicked David Blaine's ass.
