This September, Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment will release the film that took last years Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Nowhere in Africa comes to DVD.
Abandoning their once-comfortable existence in Germany, Walter Redlich, his wife Jettel
and their five-year-old daughter Regina relocate to Africa, where they each deal
with the harsh realities of their new life in different ways. Attorney Walter is resigned to
working the farm as caretaker; pampered Jettel resists adjustment at every turn; while the shy yet curious Regina immediately embraces the country – learning the local language and customs and finding a new friend in Owuor, the farm’s cook. As the war rages on the other side of the world, the trio’s relationships to their strange environment become increasingly complicated as Jettel grows more self-assured and Walter more haunted by the life they left behind. As they eventually learn to cherish their life in Africa, they also endeavor to find a way back to each other.
The film will be shown in anamorphic widescreen with audio in both German and English Dolby Digital 5.1. Extras include the “Making Of “Nowhere in Africa”” and “The Premiere” featurettes, four music videos, a still gallerydeleted scenes, cast and crew interviews, rehearsal footage, storyboards and theatrical trailers.
A September 30th release date has been put on the disc with a suggested retail price of $28.96.
