Episode Info:

In this episode, we discuss the new film from British writer-director Amma Asante, Where Hands Touch. The film was released in the US in late September to little fanfare after its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Though the film is flawed, it's often very intelligent and worthy of thoughtful discussion, which is why we've dedicated an episode to it. Three Seventh Row editors — Editor-in-Chief Alex Heeney (@bwestcineaste), Associate Editor Orla Smith (@orlamango), and Contributing Editor Brett Pardy (@AntiqueIpod) — discuss the film's complexities in this episode. Rising star Amandla Stenberg plays Leyna, a mixed race girl in Nazi Germany who falls in love with Lutz (George McKay), a member of the Hitler Youth. Nazi Germany who falls in love with Lutz (George McKay), a member of the Hitler Youth. Asante tells this story to uncover a forgotten part of history: the so called “Rhineland bastards”, children of Aryan mothers and African soldiers.
