Black Rider

Germany, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Fiction)

Director: Pepe Danquart

Berlin today; a cross-section of the community. A train carriage. In a series of beautifully observed scenes Danquart sets you up for a comedy, then delivers a double-whammy drama about racism and German indifference. A perfect film.
