09/20/2019 - German Film: Home from Home
Set in a dreary, unforgiving mid-19th-century German village in Hunsrück, Home From Home captures the plight of hundreds of thousands of Europeans who emigrated to faraway South America to escape the famine, poverty, and despotism that ruled at home. Their motto was: "Any fate is better than death". Edgar Reitz's film is a heart-wrenching drama and love story set against the backdrop of this forgotten tragedy. It encompasses a time of tribulation and illuminates the revolutionary and intellectual spirit present in the souls who are center of this tale. Jakob, our protagonist, tries to immerse himself in literature and learning, as the rest of his family toils to fend off starvation. He dreams about leaving his village, Schabbach, for a new life in Brazil and the freedom of the wild South American jungle. Spectacular landscapes and an ultra-high-definition shooting format elevate Edgar Reitz's Home Away From Home from an unforgettable story to a breathtaking cinematic experience. (With English Subtitles)

Home from Home is presented by the ongoing German Currents Kino Film Series.
