Nirgendwo in Afrika /

Nowhere in Africa

(Caroline Link, 2001)




Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a Jewish couple and their young daughter emigrate from Germany to Kenya to escape the Nazis, and are forced to come to terms with a new life on an unfamiliar continent. Not all members of the family are happy with this drastic change -- but going home isn't an option. Based on Stefanie Zweig's autobiographical novel, director Caroline Link's epic drama won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. (141 min)


This film will be shown with English subtitles.  Come see this award-winning film yourself!
