Atmospheric German Drama ‘Hinterland’ Available on DVD Dec. 13

The Expressionistic German drama Hinterland will be released on DVD plus digital Dec. 13 from Film Movement.

The film brings the visual style of post-World War I classics like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari to the 21st-century through almost exclusive use of blue screen technology. Winner of the Audience Award at the Locarno International Film Festival and from the director of the Oscar-winning film The Counterfeiters comes this visually audacious work of Expressionistic cinema.

In the film, the year is 1920. The Austro-Hungarian Empire has fallen and what remains has devolved into social unrest and political turmoil. Peter Perg, a soldier of the Great War, returns to Vienna only to realize the place he once called home is now unfamiliar to him. Having spent years as a prisoner of war, Perg is disillusioned by this strange new city distorted by the nightmares of war. His world is further upended when a gruesome series of murders targeting veterans begins to unfold. Feeling connected to the victims, Perg decides to investigate the mysterious crimes. A stranger in his own city, the looming threat of a serial killer begins to take its toll on him.
