On March 21, 2013, the Film Museum paid tribute to German director Dominik Graf (*1952) with the publication of a new book and launch of a major retrospective show. During the program, the chameleonic director who has moved effortlessly between film and television work for almost 40 years was on hand frequently to introduce screenings or discuss his films with the audience. In this clip from the Q&A following a screening of his "breakthrough" film, Die Katze (1988), Graf recounts how, with a little bit of imagination, he was able to block his producer from instigating a potentially fatal rewrite to the opening scene of the script.
