Aus dem Nichts (In the Fade) is a 2017 German film directed by Fatih Akin. It was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or in the main competition section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Out of nowhere, Katja's (Diane Kruger) life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. However, the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja‘s painful mourning - opening wounds and doubts. Danilo (Denis Moschitto), a lawyer and Nuri's best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there's simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.

The film was also supported through Creative Europe’s Automatic Distribution funding scheme.

Louisa Dent, Managing Director of Curzon Artificial Eye, said:

"Creative Europe support makes a significant contribution to Curzon's ability to champion European film. It not only helps us take acquisition risks and mount ambitious releases of non-national European films, but also encourages collaboration with European partners such as sales agents and filmmakers."
