___________________________________________________________________________
PATHS IN THE NIGHT, the first German film chosen to open Cannes' Directors
Fortnight in its 31-year-old history, confirms Andreas Kleinert as the
film-poet among an emerging generation of talented directors in Germany. In
all of Kleinert's films, his powerful metaphorical statements are conveyed
by a solid ensemble cast and professional credits. In PATHS IN THE NIGHT,
stunningly shot in black and white, Hilmar Thate plays an ex-communist in
his mid-fifties who was once powerful but is now redundant and adrift in
post-unification Germany, a society that no longer has any use for him.
Spurred by his belief in a better world, the unemployed Walter joins forces
with two young vigilantes in a nocturnal battle for law and order in
Berlin's subways.

Andreas Kleinert was born in Berlin (East) in 1962. He worked as an
assistant and intern at the DEFA feature film studios and studied directing
at the Academy of Film & Television in Babelsberg. LEBE WOHL, JOSEPH (1989)
was his graduating film which was nominated for a Student Oscar. He has
since directed VERLORENE LANDSCHAFT (19991/92), as well as NEBEN DER ZEIT
(1995), and IM NAMEN DER UNSCHULD (1996/97), which were shown at Berlin &
Beyond in 1996 and 1997. Kleinert's latest film since PATHS IN THE NIGHT
(1999) is an adaptation of Victor Klemperer's diaries: ICH MÍCHTE ZEUGNIS
ABLEGEN BIS ZUM LETZTEN (1999).
