Andreas Prochaska is not only at the 36th Torino Film Festival as a member of the official jury of the Torino 36 competition but he’s also presenting the first two episodes of his new TV Series Das Boot, a sequel to the 1981 film by Wolfgang Petersen. The TV series stars Vicky Krieps (already seen in Phantom Thread by Paul Thomas Anderson with Daniel Day Lewis) and Lizzy Caplan. Prochaska describes his approach in following up with the setting and atmospheres of the film and reveals how the TV series was very well apprecciated by the German audience and is coming out soon in other European countries such as the UK and Italy (on Sky Atlantic from January 4th).

Das Boot: A preview screening of the first two of the eight episodes of the much-awaited TV sequel, produced by Sky, of Wolfgang Petersen’s same-titled film from 1981. Directed by Andreas Prochaska (the horror movie Dead in 3 Days, the western The Dark Valley),the story shifts between the claustrophobia onboard the U-Boat 612, which sowed destruction in the Atlantic, and the charm of La Rochelle, where the French Resistance tried to halt the submarine’s actions. The cast includes Rick Okon, Vicky Krieps, and Lizzy Caplan.
