Interview: Director Fatih Akin and Star Diane Kruger on the Realism and Raw Emotions of 'In the Fade'
In the Fade was one of the anticipated foreign language films at the Toronto International Film Festival this past September, and having had the chance to see it when it was here at the festival, it is clear to see why.
It's a story that is both tragic, yet inspiring, centered on a woman who has lost everything and yet still finds a way — after grief takes hold of her — to get up and focus on the task at hand, to get justice for the family she's lost. In a world so full of hatred, defying the odds seem insurmountable.
The Reel Roundup had the opportunity to participate in a roundtable interview with the film's director, Fatih Akin, and its lead actress, Diane Kruger, who won the Best Actress award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival for her role as Katja.
