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.
