Biography

Rosa von Praunheim

Rosa von Praunheim was born in 1942 as Holger Mischwitzky in Riga, Latvia, and is since the 70s one of Germanys most notorious filmmakers. His artist name Rosa refers to the pink triangle that homosexuales were forced to wear in the Nazi concentration camps. He has made more than 100 films, with his movie “It Is Not The Homosexual Who Is Perverse, But The Society In Which He Lives” helping to start the gay movement in Germany.
