CHICKEN RANCH (1983)Nick Broomfield visits the famous 'Chicken Ranch', a famous legalised brothel in Pahrump, Nevada where he shows the prostitutes as likeable characters often looking for a way out of the remote location where the brothel is situated. DRIVING ME CRAZY (1988)Asked by Tele Munich to document the making of a musical show 'Body & Soul' by Andre Heller, Nick Broomfield's acclaimed film was originally intended as a real-life Fame, but when the tables turned on the production team, it ended up being something quite different...THE LEADER, HIS DRIVER AND HIS DRIVERS WIFE (1991)Set during the final days of the apartheid regime in South Africa, Broomfield's feature-length film takes a particular interest in Eugene Terre'Blanche, founder and leader of the far-right, white supremacist political organisation AWB.AILEEN: THE SELLING OF A SERIAL KILLER (1992)Aileen Wuornos is claimed to be the world's first female serial killer.
