Preview, a Black Teen hides in plain sight in the Third Reich, “Where Hands Touch”

Amandla Stenberg is the biracial/looks black teen trapped in Hitler Youth era Germany in this drama, also starring Abbie Cornish.

“Where Hands Touch” would have to be a true story or inspired by one, right? Germany’s official hatred of anybody who resembled Jesse Owens in the least.

I’ve always wondered about this, historically, and a quick search turns up suggestions of “thousands of black people” living in Germany when Hitler came to power.

So, true story or not, “It could have happened” backs this one up. It’s headed for the Toronto Film Festival and general release.
