Faren Humes

Titled Our Rhineland, and directed by Faren Humes (a filmmaker to certainly be aware of and watch - photo on the left), the film is set in 1937, under the Third Reich, as Germans of mixed race are being rounded up and rendered sterile. Two sisters struggle over what to do in response to the act - Sofia wants to fight, while Marta would rather just survive, and their bond is tested. 


The short stars Sabrina Alashi, Dasie Thames & Josef Urban.

It's both a a Student Emmy winner as well as a Student DGA winner, amongst other accolades.

It's now available to watch online courtesy of the Florida State University College of Motion Picture Arts.
