Starting next Monday, TIFF Bell Lightbox and Goethe Films will screen the German crime series In the Face of Crime as part of its “Berlin on Film” spring series.
The ten-part series was directed by Dominik Graf, who, after his previous experiences trying to direct a large budget film Die Sieger turned to television as a response to constant interference from producers. Graf has gone onto say he prefers filming for television for the stylistic freedom he’s found. Considering the warm reception of In the Face of Crime compared to Die Sieger, it’s been as good for his reputation as it was for his soul.
In the Face of Crime starts screening at TIFF Bell Lightbox (350 King St W) with its first three episodes on Monday, May 7, 2012 at 6:30 pm. Parts two and three screen Thursday, May 10 and Monday, May 14, respectively. Tickets are $10 and go on sale at TIFF Bell Lightbox on the day of the screening at 10:00 am.
