A frequent charge against German Regietheater is that its actors often scream at each other for no apparent reason. Between the Lines is the antidote for that ailment. In this quietly melancholy epistolary drama, filmmaker Katja Kunt investigates the life of her aunt, who, in the 1980s, left East Germany to marry and live with a man from the small West African nation of Guinea-Bissau. A collaboration between directorial duo Auftrag:Lorey and Kunt herself, the production’s secret weapon is musician Djelifily Sako playing the kora, a West African instrument that resembles the love child of a diminutive harp and a clinically obese banjo.
