Where Hands Touch Trailer
Amma Asante‘s Where Hands Touch (2018) movie trailer stars Amandla Stenberg, George MacKay, Abbie Cornish, Christopher Eccleston, and Tom Sweet. Where Hands Touch‘s plot synopsis: Inspired by a real-life 1940s-era photo of a young African-German girl, “WHERE HANDS TOUCH is a coming of age story set in the most brutal of times: Germany, 1944. Leyna (Amandla Stenberg), the 15-year old daughter of a white German mother (Abbie Cornish) and a black African father, meets Lutz (George MacKay), a compassionate member of the Hitler Youth whose father (Christopher Eccleston) is a prominent Nazi solider, and they form an unlikely connection in this quickly changing world.
As Leyna’s mother strives to protect her from the horrors that she could face as a mixed-race German citizen, Leyna is forced to forge her own path as the war goes on and the Nazi’s increase their atrocities over the Jews and all dissidents. Can she find an ally in Lutz, himself battling a fate laid out before him that he is hesitant to embrace?”
Not only does this look like a good period piece film, it looks like a important one as well. I had no idea before seeing this trailer about this particular racial situation that existed in and around Germany between World War I and World War II.
There is great talent in this film, bringing it to life, and I look forward to seeing it.
Where Hands Touch also stars Lucy Russell, Tim Faraday, Daniel Weyman, Jack Sandle, Ciarán Owens, Tom Sweet, and Simon Harrison.
