Acclaimed director Fatih Akin (In the Fade) takes us on a dark and depraved journey into the world of Fritz Honka, an alcoholic serial killer who terrorised the female patrons of his local dive bar in 1970s Germany. Featuring an astonishing, booze-soaked performance by young German actor Jonas Dassler, who is completely unrecognisable in his portrayal of the unfortunate-looking Honka, The Golden Glove is a deeply disturbing look at a deeply disturbed individual, which becomes even more horrifying when you consider that it is based on true events.

“Proceed with extreme caution, this film is not for the faint of heart. But as serial killers consolidate themselves into our popular culture, The Golden Glove is a wake up call that will make you question the very meaning of violence.”—Hudson Sowada, Festival Director
