Bernd Eichinger is a writer and producer who came to prominence in the 1980s by helping Constantin Film to become one of the most successful production companies in Germany with films like Christiane F., The Neverending Story and The Name of the Rose.
The Baader Meinhof Complex explores the creation and actions of the West German terrorist group the Red Army Faction (RAF), which was the most active and prominent terrorist group in post-war West Germany.
