These three multi-talented artists – Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Derek Jarman – created provocative works that span film, literature, theater, painting, philosophy, and more. Interesting connections between them. Pasolini galvanized Fassbinder; both inspired Jarman.

Their influence today, in art and ideas, is stronger – and more needed – than ever. Each of these three enduring creators explored dark recesses of human nature, while simultaneously pointing towards a brighter future for us, individually and as a society. Fassbinder, Pasolini, and Jarman compel us to look deeply at ourselves and our world, and they inspire us to do better. That’s not just art, it’s life.
