In the Fade
aka Aus dem Nichts
First screened in September 2017
Director: Fatih Akin. Cast: Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Numan Acar, Samia Muriel Chancrin, Ulrich Tukur, Hanna Hilsdorf, Ulrich Brandhoff, Johannes Krisch, Jessica McIntyre. Screenplay: Fatih Akin and Hark Bohm.

Twitter Capsule: If it feels sterner, tighter, and less hopeful than The Edge of Heaven, so does the world. Kruger rewards Akin's trust.

VOR:   Timely consideration of right-wing violence and, just as importantly, of how far we'll go to meet or avenge such violence. Shaky at times. Mostly strong.
