Rolf Schübel is a German film director and screenwriter. Schübel studied literature and sociology during the 1960s, first in Tübingen, and later in Hamburg. There he met filmmaker Theo Gallehr and assisted at his documentary Landfriedensbruch. However, the film was not shown in television but went directly to the film archives; the NDR as employer refused to broadcast the film because it’s statement was viewed as to radical. Nevertheless, Gallehr and Schübel produced a number of films for the NDR and WDR afterwards. For their documentary Der deutsche Kleinstädter they received the Adolf Grimme Award, as well as for Rote Fahnen sieht man besser concerning the closure of a chemical plant in Krefeld. In 1972 Schübel founded his own production company. In the following years he created the film portraits Nachruf auf eine Bestie concerning the child murderer Jürgen Bartsch and Der Indianer about a man with laryngeal cancer. The film was based on the autobiographical tale of Leonhard Lenz. Both films received various awards. His first feature film directed Schübel in 1990 with Das Heimweh des Walerjan Wróbel. The film tells the story of a Polish teenager under the regime of forced labor in Germany during World War II in northern Germany and who was later was sentenced to death by the Nazi regime for a minor misdemeanor.
