A Film by Stephan Lacant
The Internationally-Acclaimed Drama
Debuts Digitally February 4th and on DVD March 4th
SAN JOSE, CALIF. (January 6, 2013) ? Dubbed the German Brokeback Mountain for its portrayal of forbidden love between two police cadets, the award-winning drama FREE FALL will be available across all digital platforms beginning February 4th, before debuting on DVD March 4th from Wolfe Video. Part of a new wave of powerful German cinema, director Stephan Lacant?s first feature film tells the dramatic tale of a man who finds himself outside the clear-cut boundaries of his world. Acclaimed performances from Hanno Koffler, Max Riemelt and Katharina Sch?ttler provide a moving portrayal of what happens when life plans crumble and there is no way left to fulfill the needs of the people you love.
FREE FALL collected numerous awards on the film festival circuit, including the Jury Awards for Best Feature at the Philadelphia Q Fest and Louisville LGBT Film Festival, as well as Max Riemelt winning the Audience Award for Best Actor at Atlanta?s Out on Film.? In addition, the film was nominated for Best Debut Film and the Teddy Award at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.
With a promising law enforcement career and a child on the way, Marc?s (Max Reimelt, Before The Fall)? life is going according to plan until he meets the free spirited Kay (Hanno Koffler, Summer Storm). They start jogging together, bringing a breath of fresh air into Marc?s life ? and, for the first time, he develops feelings for a man. Torn between the life he knows so well and the exhilaration of this new adventure, Marc finds himself in a state of free fall, unable to make anyone happy anymore ? least of all himself.
FREE FALL has a runtime of 100 minutes and is not rated.
