German film director, screenwriter, and opera director known for his stylistic excess. Schroeter has been cited by his friend Rainer Werner Fassbinder as a personal influence and on German cinema at large. In the 1960s, Schroeter worked with Rosa von Praunheim, who is also gay. Although mainly known for elaborate and excessively camp fables, Schroeter also made some hard-hitting documentaries. He died on 12 April 2010, aged 65, in Hesse, Germany.
