The German Film Festival will feature four recent, critically-acclaimed films from Germany, each one engaging with the topic of immigration, multiculturalism, and outsiders in Germany and Europe. This second film, "Head-On" (2004), by acclaimed director Fatih Akin, tells the story of a young Turkish woman trying to break free from the strictures of her conservative Turkish family. She finds a marriage of convenience with a 40-year-old addict, but this unleashes a host of entirely different problems for her. Trailer here: Drama/Romance, German with English subtitles.
