Corinth Films will distribute Edgar Reitz’s “Home From Home,” the struggle of 19th century German villagers trying to escape the hardships of home by emigrating to South America.
Jan Dieter Schneider stars as Jakob, who longs for a new life for himself and troubled family in Brazil and whose dreams may be shattered by his devious brother, Gustav, played by Maximilian Scheidt. But Jakob refuses to let his hard work and studies go to waste and rebels against the tired labor system. After being thrown in prison and brought to near death, Jakob must reunite with his family and love, Henriette.
“Home From Home” is planned for a limited theatrical release in July.
