Pop Up Kino, a monthly German film series, presents Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Ali: Fear Eats the Soul.

A lonely widow, Emmi meets the much younger Arab worker Ali in a bar. They fall in love, and everyone and everything begins to turn against them. Fassbinder's masterful homage to Douglas Sirk's All That Heaven Allows expertly and emotionally exposes the racial tensions underlying contemporary German culture.

The film will be introduced by University of Houston Professor Dr. Sandra Frieden.
