Description

Rainer Werner Fassbinder had been making feature films for three years and already amassed a filmography that would satisfy most careers when he decided to take on a bigger challenge. Teaming up with West German television channel WDR, he conceived of Eight Hours Don t Make a Day, a series that would extend to five feature-length episodes to be broadcast at monthly intervals.

Centring on the Krüger family, as well as their lovers, in-laws, friends and co-workers, the series takes a sometimes comic, sometimes dramatic look at domestic relationships and labour relationships, with particular focus on skilled worker Jochen (Gottfried John, Berlin Alexanderplatz, Goldeneye) and his new girlfriend, Marion (Hanna Schygulla, The Marriage of Maria Braun).

Reminiscent of working-class soap operas such as Coronation Street and the family-based sitcoms of Carla Lane, Eight Hours Don t Make a Day has been a one of the more difficult to find entries of Fassbinder s extraordinarily prolific output, but is now presented here in full and newly restored by the Fassbinder Foundation.
