“Kino is a fast, complex, exhilarating roadster ride through history and time. It is the story of a woman who becomes obsessed with her grandfather, a visionary film director, [and] the powerful bindings of family, the sweet, dark loam of loss, and the high-voltage current of pulp fascism. Kino is an intoxicating Euro-brew, written with enormous skill and dedication.” -Frederick Barthelme
When newlywed Mina Koblitz discovers the long-lost silent film reels of her grandfather’s first movie on her doorstep, her adrenaline-filled search for answers begins. Risking family ties, her marriage and her own safety, Mina hops a plane to Germany and uncovers the legacy and legend of her grandfather’s filmmaking in Germany in the 1920s and 30s.
Delving deep into the debauched glamour of pre-war Berlin, Kino reveals the trials facing a visionary artist under the force of fascism and the challenges his granddaughter must embrace to redeem him.
