Nowhere In Africa

Director:   Caroline Link
Year:   2002
Language:   German
Time:   142 minutes

A Jewish family in Germany emigrate shortly before the Second World War. They move to Kenya to start running a farm, but not all members of the family adapt equally well to their new life. Shortly after their departure, things begin to change in Germany very quickly, and a turning back seems impossible. (This film won the Oscar in 2002 for best foreign language film.)

The film is based on an autobiographical novel written by Stephanie Zwieg (ISBN 0299199606).
