Germany selects ‘In the Fade’ for Oscars
    2017-August-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

GERMANY has picked Fatih Akin’s terrorist drama “In the Fade” to represent the country in the 2018 Oscars in the foreign-language category.

Diane Kruger made her German-language acting debut in the film, playing a German woman whose Kurdish husband and child are killed in an xenophobic terrorist attack. She picked up the best actress award in Cannes for her performance. The story was inspired by real-life neo-Nazi attacks on ethnic Turks and other minorities living in Germany.

Akin is an established figure in the German art house scene — his hard-hitting drama “Head-On” won the Berlin Film Festival’s Golden Bear in 2004 and “The Edge of Heaven,” which won Akin the best screenplay in Cannes in 2007, was put forward as Germany’s Oscar candidate but was not nominated.

Germany has been nominated 19 times in the past in the best-foreign-language category — most recently for Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann” — and has won the statuette three times: for Volker Schlondorff’s “The Tin Drum” in 1979, for Caroline Link’s “Nowhere in Africa” in 2002 and for “The Lives of Others” from Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck in 2006.

Meanwhile, Turkey has selected Can Ulkay’s debut feature “Ayla: The Daughter of War” as its candidate in the race for best foreign-language film in the Oscars. Set during the Korean War in 1950, the film tells the story of a Turkish soldier, Sgt. Suleyman (Cetin Tekindor) who comes across an abandoned 5-year-old girl on a freezing cold night. The terrified, barely alive child melts Suleyman’s heart who risks his own life to smuggle her back to his army base and out of harm’s way.(SD-Agencies)
