I guess many of you, who’ve been reading this blog for a while, are now like What!? Sasaya hasn’t been reviewed here? Why yes, it’s true.

Fremd is a contemplative, yet highly political observation of patience and optimism in the face of despair. I met director Miriam Faßbender in Kreuzberg to talk about her film.
