Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #23. Feo Aladag’s Inbetween Worlds

Inbetween Worlds

Director: Feo Aladag
Writer: Feo Aladag, Judith Kaufmann, Matthias Kock
Producer: Feo Aladag
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Ronald Zehrfeld, Mohsin Ahmady, Saida Barmaki, Abdul Salim Yosofzai

Actress turned director Feo Aladag’s directorial debut, 2010’s When We Leave, won Best Actress and Narrative Feature at the Tribeca Film Fest, featuring actress Sibel Kikelli in a devastating performance. While it rather unceremoniously came to US theaters in the Spring of 2011, we’ve been anticipating what Aladag would turn to next. So we were thrilled to hear in mid 2013 that Aladag had filmed a project in secret in the Hindu Kush, between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the first foreign film to be shot in the region. Featuring German actor Ronald Zehrfeld (from Petzold’s Barbara), we’re excited to see what promises to be a finely tuned and tense drama.

Gist: Set in the mountainous region between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the film centers on the friendship between a soldier, Jesper (Ronald Zehrfeld), and an interpreter, Tarik (Mohamad Mohsen).

Release Date: This premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.
