Hi Masha and all,
Further to the suggestion of others (including Jack who, as an aside, edited the very good "Guns, Death, Terror : An Illustrated History of International Terrorism") there are several films that relate to the Baader-Meinhof and events in Germany.
The Institute of Contemporary Arts, London had a short season of related films, some information about which can be seen at this link -
There is also
The Lost Honour of Katrina Blum - Dir Volker Schlondorf
Stamheim - Dir Stefan Aust
Legend of Rita - Dir Volker Schlondorf
If anyone knows of good books, films (anything) to do with the Italian Ros Brigados, I'd be keen to know.

Subject: question about films of/about terror
I'm looking for your suggestions.
Could you advise me films (documentary and narrative) which are dealing with following topics:
1.WHAT IS TERRORISM?
2.RAF (ROTE ARMEE FRAKTION) AND THE 'HEISSE HERBST' (HOT FALL) IN GERMANY
3.ITALIAN LEGISLATURE AND THE BRIGATE ROSSE (RED BRIGADES)
4. SINN FEIN, IRA AND THE BELFAST AGREEMENT
5. ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM
6. MEMORIES OF A TERRORIST
8. TERRORISM IN RUSSIA
A short explanation: at our university in St. Petersburg a political
science department decided to organize a film-club which will show
films on/about terrorism and have discussions with political
film scholars about them. A course of our one colleague was taken as a
base for grouping the films.
All suggestions will be highly appreciated.
