Join us on the fourth Wednesday of every month for Odyssey Film Club, a special strand designed to shine a light on cinema from around the world.

This October we head to Germany for acclaimed director Fatih Akin’s latest heart-racing drama In the Fade. Starring Diane Kruger in a Cannes-winning role, we follow the story of Katja, a woman whose family is killed in a bombing by neo-nazi attackers in the heart of the Turkish district of Hamburg.

This feature probes into the disturbing impact of trauma, mourning, and a mother’s grief, within the context of a victims loved ones that are forced to pick up the pieces left behind by contemporary fascist movements.

Includes a post-film ‘squaretable’ discussion, hosted by Odyssey Film Club programmer Josh Andrews.
