I discovered some great news as I was posting my latest entry on the Doc Film Blog here @ WIN. Fatih Akin's fantastic film In July (Im Juli) is set to be released (in June, no less) on video by Koch Lorber films (distributor for the upcoming doc The 5 Obstructions). I first saw this little gem of a film at the 2000 Thessaloniki Film Festival and found it a great little surprise. Long a darling of the Berlinalle, the 30 year-old Akin picked up the 2004 Golden Bear top prize for his latest film, Gegen Die Wand (Head On). I urge everyone to mark down June 8th on your calendars and rent In July!
