Film information

Story: Renowned British director Kenneth Loach's return to feature film-making after his controversial documentaries of the early eighties, 'Fatherland' offers an intriguing blend of political realism (scripted by Trevor Griffiths), psychological thriller and self-reflexivity about Loach's own art and the degree to which it is possible to make effective political statements within popular culture. It follows the forced defection to West Berlin of a famous protest singer-songwriter who comes into conflict with the East German authorities. What he finds in the West is another kind of censorship imposed by those American record executives who control the music market and shape popular culture. Klaus' disillusionment and exile eventually lead him to search for his long-lost father in England and in the process uncovers some of his own personal and national history.

Starring: Gerulf Pannach, Christine Rose, Fabienne Babe, Robert Dietl, Sigfrit Steiner, Heike Schrotter
