The Swiss actress Annemarie Düringer died on 26 November in Baden, Austria. It was her eighty-ninth birthday. Düringer was known for her numerous theater and film roles. From 1949 until shortly before her death, she was a member of Vienna’s Burgtheater ensemble, where she worked with directors such as Peter Zadek, Hans Neuenfels and Claus Peyman. It was while playing the lead role in the short film BOURBON STREET BLUES directed by Douglas Sirk with students at the University of Television and Film Munich in 1977 that Düringer met Rainer Werner Fassbinder. She later played Cilly in Fassbinder’s BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ and Dr. Marianne Katz in VERONIKA VOSS. The Rainer Werner Fassbinder Foundation mourns the death of this special actress.
