Peter Kern 02/13/1949 , (75 years old) in Wien, Austria

Known for department



Iconoclastic Austrian indie director and former New German Cinema actor Peter Kern isn't just the subject of Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala's "Kern," but also the low-fi film's strongest creative force. He appeared in more than 70 feature films and directed a further 25. At his peak, Kern worked with the best directors of his era, including Rainer Werner Fassbinder (Fox and His Friends, The Stationmaster's Wife), Hans-Jurgen Syberberg (Hitler: A Film From Germany) and Wim Wenders (Wrong Move). “When I yell at you, please do not be immediately hurt. If I insult you, take it as proof of love. Remember, I'm Austrian, insane, hysterical, hypocritical and undemocratic.”
