The 17th Hamburg International Film Festival (September 24-Otober 3) opens today with Fatih Akin’s new film Soul Kitchen, which was lauded at Venice at the start of the month. The nine participating theatres will show a total of 142 films from 42 countries. Organisers have decided to extend the event by two days, until October 3.
