Canadian sexploitation filmmaker Bruce LaBruce goes to Germany to write and direct the satire Raspberry Reich, inspired by real-life '70s radical group the Baader-Meinhof gang. East German dominatrix Gudrun (Susanne Sachsse) leads a revolutionary gang of her own in Berlin. She has her men kidnap the son of a rich businessman in order to gain publicity. Claiming that heterosexuality is a social norm created to keep the people down, she forces her male minions to have sex with each other. Raspberry Reich was shown at the Sundance Film Festival as part of the midnight screenings.
