"The city of Berlin provides a dynamic backdrop for this delicate, elegant film. Accentuating the subtle nature of this story is a perfectly-fitting soundtrack." ~ Sedona International Film Festival 2018

August In Berlin
Filmed over 8 days in Berlin, Germany, AUGUST IN BERLIN is a character-driven drama that dives deep into the hearts of two strangers. Smith says, "I am a fan of intimate dramas like “My Dinner With Andre" and had the opportunity to make this film in Berlin. I loved the challenge of writing a story about two people who learn about each other in an intense few hours, through talking about work, life, the difficult past and the unknown future."
